POET offering scholarships to students

Farm Forum

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Since 2016, POET has awarded 37 scholarships to students who share POET’s mission to change the world for the better. These students have ambitious goals — from deploying clean water systems in developing nations to eradicating diseases around the world — and truly embody what it means to be “Never Satisfied,” according to a news release.

POET will again award 10 “Never Satisfied” scholarships in 2021. The scholarship program will provide $5,000 to each awarded recipient. Applicants must be enrolled in any two- or four-year post-secondary school in the U.S., but there are no major or GPA requirements. “Never Satisfied” scholars will be invited to visit POET’s Sioux Falls headquarters to learn about how POET and biofuels impact the environment, human health and the economy when health and safety concerns allow.

To apply, visit poet.com/scholarships. Applicants must provide their contact and education information and answer three brief essay questions regarding their commitment to making the world a better place. Students may also upload a video telling POET more about what makes them “Never Satisfied.” Scholarships are available to students enrolled for the fall semester 2021. The 2021 scholarship application closes Feb. 15.
