Darling Ingredients Awards More Than $200,000 in Scholarships and Grants to FFA Students

PR Newswire

IRVING, Texas, Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Darling Ingredients Inc. (NYSE: DAR), awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships and grants to members of the National Future Farmers of America (FFA) Association in 2021. College scholarships of $10,000 each were awarded to 11 students across the country while various state grants were distributed to agriculture-based student projects and financial assistance.

Darling Ingredients partnered with the FFA to develop accomplishment-based criteria for scholarship/grant qualifications. The criteria included GPA, agricultural career pathway, and entrepreneurial project description. Based on students' responses, the National FFA made the final selections on scholarship/grant recipients. Darling's contribution is part of the $1.5 million in scholarships awarded to FFA members in the last year.

"These young people are the future of sustainable agriculture," said Randall C. Stuewe, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Darling Ingredients Inc. "Darling is thrilled to partner with the FFA and its mission to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education."

This announcement falls the week of the 94th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana. Darling's presence at the convention will include hosting a booth, #1109, and meeting with young agriculturalists about their future prospects.
