Southern AgCredit Participates in Farm Credit’s HBCU Career and Internship Fair

Farm Credit is a mission-driven system of cooperative lending institutions. Supporting people of color in agriculture and rural communities is an integral part of our mission.

The Importance of Diversity in Agriculture

We believe in the future of American agriculture. A diverse set of voices is a critical part of that future. There are a unique set of careers available in the Farm Credit system. Therefore, we are consistently looking for opportunities to recruit talented, young professionals of all identities, to join us in accomplishing our mission.

Virtual HBCU Career Fair on October 29, 2020

On Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET, Farm Credit will host its first Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Career and Internship Fair. HBCUs are home to a vast talent pool, and Farm Credit hopes to attract HBCU students to explore employment and internship opportunities at our institutions.

Stipends for New Graduates

Farm Credit will award any HBCU student or recent graduate hired to intern at Farm Credit a $3,500 Launching Leaders Stipend in addition to their wage.

Please note this is a virtual event. Southern AgCredit will have a booth at this event, and we look forward to speaking to all participants.
