Ram Trucks announced this week it will award seventy-six $1,000 local scholarships and a $2,500 national scholarship to FFA students pursuing post-secondary education in communities across the United States.
More than 6,000 FFA students applied for the Ram Truck scholarships in 2013, and those selected to receive funding were based on merit, academic records, leadership, and involvement in the agricultural community.
Winning students will be presented with certificates within the coming weeks at their local sponsoring dealership.
"Ram has supported the FFA for more than 60 years, as we understand the importance of providing opportunities for current and future leaders in agriculture," stated Robert Hegbloom, Director - Ram Truck Brand. "Ram Trucks fit the lifestyle and culture of FFA members, and we continue to work with our local dealerships to support and build our relationships with the organization."
The Ram Truck brand has awarded approximately $600,000 in scholarships throughout its 29 year sponsorship of the FFA scholarship initiative.
