The Auburn University College of Agriculture marked a historic first
in the 2013-14 academic year when, for the first time in Auburn
agriculture’s 142 years, the majority of students enrolled
in the college—55 percent—were females.
Guiding, mentoring and providing financial support to these young ladies as they prepare to work in a traditionally male-dominated field is the mission of Successful Women in Agriculture, a newly established College of Agriculture donor society composed of women who are thriving professionally in agriculture, agribusiness and agriculture-related industries.
As a member of Successful Women in Agriculture, you’ll be invited to special on-campus events and professional development programs that will give you the opportunity to share ideas and to meet, build relationships with and positively influence enthusiastic young women who will be the agricultural producers, scientists, businesswomen, policymakers and leaders of tomorrow. Your membership promises to be a stimulating and fulfilling experience.
A joint effort between the College of Agriculture’s Development and Student Services offices, the society’s chief purpose is to create scholarships for deserving co-eds majoring in agriculture at Auburn. The scholarships will be funded by Successful Women in Agriculture members’ annual gifts at any of four levels: $100, $250, $500 or $1,000. As a donor, you will receive a Successful Women in Agriculture lapel pin and an invitation to on campus events in the fall and spring. All gifts will be tax deductible.
