Southwest Georgia Farm Credit is committed to help ensure a bright future for our rural communities and the agricultural industry through our scholarship program.

We will provide four $1,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors who live in our association territory, which includes the following Georgia counties:

Baker, Calhoun, Chattahoochee, Clay, Decatur, Dougherty, Early, Grady, Lee, Marion, Miller, Mitchell, Quitman, Randolph, Schley, Seminole, Stewart, Sumter, Terrell, Thomas, Webster

The four scholarships will be awarded to students who show a record of scholastic achievement and who, through their extracurricular activities, exemplify community spirit. High school seniors pursuing either a two- or four-year degree may apply. Public, private, and home-schooled students are all eligible. Applicants need not be members of Southwest Georgia Farm Credit.

Applicants must complete the scholarship application and include the following:

  • A high school transcript, showing GPA and class rank.
  • Two letters of recommendation from someone other than an immediate family member.
  • A two-page, single-spaced essay, “My hopes and dreams for rural America.”
  • Must indicate that student’s primary residence is within the Association’s 21-county territory.

Scholarship winners will be chosen based on overall achievement and accomplishments.
