2022 Scholarships announced

Investing in our youth is a commitment MFA takes seriously. The MFA Foundation Scholarship Program is a prime example of that commitment. Established in 1958, the Foundation is a nonprofit, philanthropic organization with the primary purpose of advancing educational opportunities for high school seniors in MFA’s trade territory. Since 1965, the Foundation’s foremost mission has been awarding MFA Foundation scholarships, which have provided financial assistance to nearly 15,000 students, totaling nearly $17 million. 


In an increasingly complex world, education and technical training become important tools for today’s young people to flourish. The MFA Foundation scholarships are intended to help students pursue studies and develop careers that enhance the future of rural America. These scholarships are offered to high school seniors who are children or grandchildren (including step-children or step-grandchildren) of member-level customers of MFA Agri Services Centers, MFA Oil Company bulk plants or propane plants, or qualified customers of other MFA affiliate locations. The scholarships are $2,000 each and may be used at any college or university. Eligible high school seniors are encouraged to apply online HERE. 

This year, 245 high school seniors received scholarships worth a total of nearly $490,000, co-sponsored by the MFA Foundation and MFA locations. 

Throughout its history, MFA has continually endeavored to make a difference in communities where the cooperative and its affiliates operate. One of the best ways to positively impact the future is to cultivate the next crop of agricultural leaders, and these scholarships are only one way MFA is fulfilling that mission. We actively sponsor and participate in organizations such as 4-H and FFA along with other educational activities and programs, including Missouri Farmers Care’s Ag Education on the Move. At MFA, we realize that investing in our rural communities and youth education is truly an investment in agriculture.
