For students pursuing a degree in agriculture, they understand the importance of applying for scholarships. The GROWMARK Foundation is once again offering 15 $1,500 scholarships to students in the United States and Ontario, Canada, who are pursing two- or four-year degrees or trade school certification in an agriculture-related field.

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. At the time of application, students must be high school seniors or the equivalent, or continuing students enrolled in good standing at a college, university, or technical school.
The application can be found on their website. If selected, scholarship funds will be paid directly to the student’s account at their respective school.
“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 communications manager and GROWMARK Foundation manager.
Applications are due by midnight Central Time on April 17, 2020 and recipients will be notified by July 1, 2020.
