Home » Students » Scholarships » Ryan Mott Memorial Scholarship
Ryan Mott was the 1997-98 Area IV State FFA Vice President from Quanah, Texas.  He passed away in 1998 after a short but courageous battle with cancer.  This memorial scholarship was established by his family and friends to honor his dedication to the FFA organization and its members.  It will provide one student with a $1,000 scholarship, which will be distributed through the Texas FFA Foundation. This scholarship is intended to recognize students within the FFA that possess the same outstanding qualities as Ryan.  The scholarship recipient will be a person who is kind, courteous, hardworking, and dedicated to the FFA.  The person should also possess strong leadership and communication skills (which they use on an individual basis as well as in a team situation).  Furthermore, ACT or SAT scores will not be considered as a primary factor when selecting the scholarship winner.  Instead, the student’s personal characteristics and FFA involvement will be the two major deciding factors. 

Scholarship candidates who have advanced to the state scholarship selection process in the Texas FFA Scholarship program are not eligible to compete for the Ryan Mott Scholarship.  The John Justin Standard of the West Award is not part of the Texas FFA Scholarship Program and does not affect eligibility for the Ryan Mott Memorial Scholarship. 

To apply for this scholarship, a student must complete the application located on their Texas FFA Roster Account and submit it for review at each applicant’s appropriate district or area convention. If any part of the application is incomplete, it will be rejected. 

The application must:  
(1) Be completed online.
(2) Be accompanied by an official transcript
(3) Be accompanied by three letters of recommendation. (one from local FFA advisor,one from a community member, and one from a past/present employer (if possible) or a school administrator)
(4) Include a senior year photograph
Applicants may undergo interviews at each level of competition. This decision should be made by the local officials. The applicants advancing to the state level will go through an interview process at the state degree check.
