WLC Alumni Scholarship

Back to Awards & Scholarships

Information Updated 10/21/2021

Each year, FFA members from all over the United States travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC).

During the five-day event, FFA members learn how to become effective leaders by teaching them to know their purpose, value people, take action, and serve others. This is no ordinary leadership experience quite like WLC! Members spend the week putting these skills into practice as they make new friends from across the United States, touring our nation’s capitol and visiting with members of Congress. This action-packed week will help them gain self-confidence and leadership skills to take back to their FFA chapter and share with other members. Members leave WLC with the knowledge and the confidence to act in ways that help their schools, community, and their country.

This scholarship is open to all Kansas FFA members.

  • The Kansas FFA Alumni has traditionally granted $650.00 scholarships to deserving FFA members whose local affiliate are in good standing with the Kansas FFA Alumni.
  • Deserving FFA members whose FFA chapter doesn’t not have an active local affiliate will be considered for $550.00 scholarships.
  • Recipients must attend WLC the year the scholarship is awarded.
  • Applications are due electronically by November 15 of each year. 
  • WLC Alumni Scholarship recipients will be announced by mid-December.
