Tractor Supply Foundation Announces Scholarship Program

Tractor Supply Company recently announced a new scholarship program in partnership with the National FFA Organization to support the next generation of farmers and rural lifestyle careers, including skilled trades. Each year for the next five years, the Tractor Supply Foundation will donate $1 million to the FFA Future Leaders Scholarship Fund by Tractor Supply, making it the largest agriculture scholarship fund of its kind.

“Tractor Supply is very proud to be an integral part of each community that lives and loves the Out Here lifestyle, and we want to do our part to ensure rural communities continue to grow and thrive for future generations,” said Kimberley Gardiner, Chief Marketing Officer of Tractor Supply. “With this scholarship, we can help so many young people overcome financial barriers to pursue the educational opportunities and experiences that are critical to rural America. With the support of our amazing customers, Team Members and partner FFA, we can generate the funds to guarantee Life Out Here is in good hands.”

Tractor Supply will also offer scholarship recipients career opportunities at its stores or distribution centers while they are pursuing their education and will earmark internships at its support center each year. Tractor Supply hopes scholarships like these will help the industries fill open positions that require technical skills like clinical veterinarian, carpentry, plumbing and electrical specialties.

National FFA Foundation President Molly Ball stated, “The $5 million Tractor Supply Foundation donation to the FFA Scholarship Program will help an additional 150 FFA members annually with the cost of furthering their education. At $5,000 and $10,000, these scholarships will make a big impact for students awarded the FFA Future Leaders Scholarship Fund by Tractor Supply.”

To support the FFA Future Leaders Scholarship Fund by Tractor Supply, customers will have an opportunity to donate at checkout, either in Tractor Supply stores or online.
