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. Participants can choose to re-apply for a Year 2 experience.
To date, the Foundation has supported over 100 Ambassadors. This leadership program has shaped their academic and career paths in numerous ways. Apply below by November 19.
