IFAL applications now available

 

Are you a high school junior and interested in agriculture as a career?  You could be eligible to attend the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL): a free five-day summer leadership conference at the University of Kentucky or Murray State University. 

The Institute For Agricultural Leaders (IFAL) is a unique program that exposes students to college life and explores different fields of study for careers in agriculture.

IFAL participants will live in university dormitories, eat in university dining facilities and become acquainted with the college campuses of Murray State University or the University of Kentucky.  The conference will include special leadership classes, exciting speakers, team building recreation, fellowship and visits to research farms and agriculture-related industries. Participants will be selected from the most well-rounded students in their class who have an interest in furthering their education at the post-secondary level.
