Collegiate Farm Bureau is a program of Kansas Farm Bureau which exists to support students engaged in agriculture, enhance members’ education and develop future leaders for the organization and ag industry. Chapter activities center around Kansas Farm Bureau’s mission based in advocacy, education and service and provide opportunities for members to meet new friends and mentors and build leadership skills.
Collegiate Farm Bureau chapters currently exist on 15 college campuses across the state of Kansas. The best way to get involved is to go to a meeting or chapter activity to meet members and learn about your college’s chapter. Students may join at any point during the year, but the regular membership year is August-June. Chapter leaders have membership forms for new members to complete and each chapter sets their own chapter fee, 100% of which goes to the chapter budget. Each chapter works closely with their county and the state office so if you need information about meeting times or upcoming activities, contact the county coordinator at the email that coordinates to your campus below or email the state office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Collegiate members are invited to participate in two types of competition at the Young Farmers & Ranchers Conference.
Each year the Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture sponsors up to 24 scholarships for current Collegiate Farm Bureau members who plan to continue their membership during the following school year at one of the 14 chapters across the state. The $500 scholarships are awarded to individuals who are actively involved in their collegiate chapter. To be considered, members must submit a one-page application and resume by March 1. Chosen recipients will be notified by June 1 and must provide proof of enrollment for the following fall semester and join their collegiate chapter in the coming school year before the scholarship check is sent in the fall.
We are now accepting applications for 2017. Click here to go to the KFB Foundation for Agriculture page to apply.
