The Chrysler NBFA Scholarship Helps Black Students in Agriculture

Chrysler NBFA Scholarship

Working with the National Black Farmers Association, Chrysler has helped to develop a scholarship to encourage students to pursue degrees in agriculture-related study. Proving up to $5,000 in scholarships at accredited two-year and four-year colleges, universities, and vocational schools, this opportunity is helping the black farming community to expand.

According to Chrysler, the Chrysler NBFA Scholarship is given on the basis of an application, and recipients are required to have met certain criteria. This includes academic performance, leadership and participation in agricultural and community activities, and clear career goals and objectives. Only the best are selected.

“Higher education provides transformational tools, knowledge and resources,” said Lesley Slavitt, Head of Civic Engagement, FCA US LLC, and CEO of the FCA Foundation. “It is a privilege for the FCA Foundation to be a partner in ensuring that the next generation of African-American farmers receives the training and skills that will help them to thrive.”

Established in May 2015, the NBFA scholarship program has awarded 19 scholarships within one year, totaling $87,000. In 1910, nearly 1 million black families owned over 15 million acres of land. Today, less than 45,000 black families own farms, totaling 3 million. The goal is to recognize racial disparities and to encourage young black students to get involved in agriculture. Chrysler is a dedicated partner for anything that helps future generations thrive.
