For students interested in following their passion for agriculture, scholarships are a great opportunity to help alleviate the financial burden. World Ag Expo and E.M. Tharp Inc. have teamed up for the 15th annual We Believe in Growing scholarship, created to support agriculture education. High school seniors from Madera, Fresno, Tulare, Kings, and Kern counties in California are encouraged to apply by January 14, 2022, to be considered.
The We Believe in Growing scholarship is a $10,000 scholarship to be awarded to two students who attend a four-year university and plan on majoring in an agricultural field. The scholarships will be disbursed over four years at $2,500 per year.
To be considered for the scholarship, students must submit two letters of recommendation; one copy of their high school transcripts; and be graduating from high school during the 2021-2022 school year.
