It is a great way for our organization to help our farm families as they work to provide educational opportunities to their children. The BTGCA scholarship is awarded on the basis of the student's overall grade-point average, writing ability, and leadership potential. The BTGCA will show preference to those applicants who have a tobacco farming background. The BTGCA scholarship is awarded for one academic year, in two equal amounts for the fall and spring semesters. Students may re-apply each year.
