“Arkansas Farm Bureau has always been an advocate for higher education,” said Arkansas Farm Bureau President Rich Hillman of Carlisle. “The future of Arkansas agriculture is dependent on young adults who are pursuing agricultural careers. Supporting them remains a priority for this organization.” 

Arkansas Farm Bureau and county Farm Bureau organizations have awarded more than $1 million to assist more than 2,000 youth with their college expenses.

Many county Farm Bureaus also award scholarships to young people in local communities.
