New Prague, MN — The Agricultural Relations Council (ARC) is pleased to announce it is reinstating its scholarship program for college students studying ag communications. The organization, through its foundation, will grant one, $1,500 scholarship for the 2015-2016 school year.

ARC conducted a scholarship program up until about 10 years ago. Through the financial contributions of recent Hall of Fame recipients Richard Howell and Gary Myers, along with pledges from several others in the organization, ARC will now award its scholarship in the spring.

In the next couple years we hope to reinstate our internship program as well. A career in public relations can be satisfying and rewarding. Scholarships and internships are ways to show college students the value of pursuing jobs in this area.”

Notices were sent to universities and colleges in October & January announcing the program. Students will have until March 1, 2015, to submit their applications. Among those contacted will be Ag Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT) students through its state chapters.
