Federated Scholarships

2023-2024 Scholarship Program Requirements

We recognize college costs have increased substantially in the last two decades, so Federated Co-ops has established this Scholarship Program to recognize and reward students from our local communities. In many of the communities we do business with, we are a major employer with good-paying jobs and opportunities for personal growth.  Our goal is to attract local talent to stay and raise families to help strengthen our communities.  Our hope is that students who receive funding will leverage these dollars to pursue an education that will enhance the future of our local communities. 


  • School District Senior [of the school they are applying through]
  • Federated Co-ops, Inc. member or current employee [supply member/customer#] 
  • Financial need a factor in consideration.
  • Students must enroll in a two-year or four-year accredited college. The educational focus being Agronomy, Energy, Retail or service industry is preferred. (i.e., mechanic school)

We ask that after the student has been awarded their scholarship, a high-resolution photo of the student with the signed release be emailed to hr@federatedcoops.com to add to our website. 

Financial Support:

We will contribute up to $2,000.00 to the student that is selected.


We ask that all scholarship requests be submitted on or before 4/15/2024.
