Seven Mizzou students were selected to receive Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Scholarships. AFA’s mission is to “build bridges for young leaders, fostering engagement and innovation in food and agriculture.”

The students were selected based on their career goals, leadership and community involvement and financial need. Recipients will also receive admission to the AFA Leaders Conference in November.
