GROWMARK announces nationwide agriculture scholarship program
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – The GROWMARK Foundation is once again offering a $1,500 scholarship program for students in the United States and Ontario, Canada, pursing two- or 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 www.growmark.com/scholarship. Applications are due by midnight on April 13 and recipients will be notified by July 1.
