Farm Bureau’s 2015 Institutes for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL)


North Carolina Farm Bureau is pleased to sponsor the 2015 Institutes for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL) at NC State University in Raleigh and NC A&T State University in Greensboro the week of June 21-26, 2015.

The Institute for Future Agriculture Leaders is a week-long program for high school students interested in the agricultural industry. Emphasis is placed on career opportunities, emerging technology, citizenship and leadership development.  Students will visit the schools of agriculture, tour research farms and explore university laboratories, visit agribusinesses and participate in leadership development classes.

Rising high school seniors in the upper third of their classes who are interested in agriculture and recommended by their county Farm Bureau are invited to attend IFAL.  There is no fee to attend and the event is limited to 40 students per program.  Selection is based on GPA, career interest, interest and experience with agriculture.  Priority will be given to Farm Bureau members.

Applications are due to your local Farm Bureau office by the end of March 2015.  Please click on the links below for the application and Information letter.
