A $1,500 scholarship program is available from the Growmark Foundation for students in the United States and Ontario, Canada, who are pursuing two- and four-year degrees or trade school certification in an agriculture-related field.
“As our business has grown and evolved, we saw a need to provide a scholarship to students throughout the United States and Ontario, in addition to the scholarship programs already established in our core geography,” said Amy Bradford, Growmark corporate relations manager and The Growmark Foundation manager. “Growmark and FS member cooperatives are strong supporters of youth leadership education and this is one more way we can contribute to the future of agriculture.”
Applicants must complete an online application which includes academic information, community service and leadership activities, and essay questions regarding agriculture and cooperatives. Applications will be judged by a panel of agribusiness professionals.
High school seniors or students at any level of higher education may complete the application, which can be found at http://www.growmark.com/scholarship. Applications are due by midnight on April 13, 2018 and recipients will be notified by July 1, 2018.
