BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – As an extension of its sponsorship with the National FFA Foundation, Tractor Supply Co. recently announced a new scholarship program to assist FFA members in their pursuit of college degrees.

The Growing Scholars Program will be supported nationally by each of the more than 1,150 Tractor Supply stores now through Sunday, which includes National FFA Week. Customers can donate $1 at store registers during checkout to support local FFA chapters and their members. Ninety percent of funds raised through Tractor Supply’s Growing Scholars Program will be used to fund scholarships for FFA members. The remaining 10 percent of donations will benefit state FFA organizations.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be current FFA members and either high-school seniors or freshmen, sophomore or junior college students seeking two- or four-year degrees or other specialized training program.

Major areas of study will also be considered when determining scholarship recipients.
