$60K Available For Students In Agriculture

GreenStone Farm Credit Services believes investing in the future of agriculture and natural resources is a crucial step towards sustainability in the industry.

In 2024, GreenStone is doing just that by awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships to incoming and current college students pursuing careers in agriculture, timber, and natural resources.

Since 2010, GreenStone has awarded more than $435,000 in scholarships to undergraduate students.

Scholarship Opportunities:

  • GreenStone will award up to $40,000 in scholarships to incoming college freshmen for $2,000 each to selected students attending a four-year college program and $1,000 each to selected students attending a two-year college program. 
  • The Dave Armstrong Scholarship Program, named after GreenStone’s former CEO of 41 years, awards four current college students with a scholarship for $5,000 each. 

Scholarship applicants must live within GreenStone’s territory, which includes Michigan and select counties in northeastern Wisconsin. Applicants must also plan to study in an agricultural-related field, including timber and natural resources, achieve the required academic success, and demonstrate leadership in their school, community, and agricultural activities.
