The Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture was formed in 1998 and since its inception, the foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide scholarships and grants which fund programs and projects designed to help improve agriculture and the quality of life in rural Kansas. The three areas of emphasis and action are:
A sincere thanks to everyone who generously supports the Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture and the positive impact they enable the foundation to have on people working in agriculture and living in rural Kansas. The variety of financial supporters enables the foundation to provide scholarships and grants to further the mission of supporting and enhancing agriculture and the farm and ranch families of Kansas.
Applications for the 2018 Janet Sims Memorial Teacher of the Year and KFB Foundation for Agriculture Excellence in Teaching awards are now available. All Kansas K-12 educators are eligible to apply. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2017. Winners will be announced late September.

Each year, the Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture awards scholarships to college students. Forty-five recipients received $26,500 in scholarships for the 2016-17 school year.
KFB Leaders have generously provided funding for Kansas Farm Bureau's Foundation for Ag Leaders Circle. As a result of those contributions we are able to grow the leadership development pillar of the foundation.
