Growing Talent for Agriculture!
Ambassador Scholars are young adults—18 to 25—who are passionate about agriculture and food. Whether in college or newly employed, they are eager to engage with supply chain decision-makers, dive into priority issues, and build hard business skills and a professional network. Competitively selected, Ambassadors participate in the NYS Agricultural Society’s Annual Forum in January – arguably the oldest and largest event of its kind in the US, and participate in a Summer Leadership Experience (SLE) within the diverse NYS ag and food industry.
To date, the Foundation has supported nearly 100 Ambassadors. This experience has shaped their academic and career paths in numerous ways.
Stay tuned for details on the 2021 Summer Leadership Experience and 2022 Annual Forum.
