We are committed to serving youth in agriculture by providing over $100,000 in scholarships to Texas high school seniors. Each branch office awards at least one $1,000 scholarship to graduating seniors who are seeking an agriculture-related degree.
Contact the Capital Farm Credit office closest to you to request an application. All applications must be submitted to the student’s local branch office.

Each year, to celebrate Ag Day, Capital Farm Credit holds a contest for high school aged 4-H and FFA in Texas. Students create a 30 second video to tell us “What Agriculture Means to Me” and uploads the video link to enter. Winners are determined by online voting. The video that receives the most online votes wins that high school student a scholarship, and their 4-H or FFA Chapter will also receive a donation.
- First Place Student: $2,500 & their chapter receives $1,500
- Second Place Student: $1,500 & their chapter receives $1,000
- Third Place Student: $1,000 & their chapter receives $500
- Corporate Selection: $1,000 & their chapter receives $500
Students can begin creating their video at any time, but they will not be able to upload or start receiving votes until February 4, 2019. (Upload all videos here) The contest ends March 19, 2019.
Capital Farm Credit is committed to supporting rural communities and agriculture with reliable, consistent credit and financial services. But we’re also committed to supporting the people and organizations who will continue the proud traditions we hold so dear. We encourage you to share this information with your local 4-H Clubs and FFA Chapters.
