GROWMARK Foundation announces 2022 scholarship winners


Out of over 300 applying students, 15 recipients of GROWMARK Foundation scholarships winners have been chosen across North America. 

Agricultural education is integral to the future success of the industry. Companies like GROWMARK offer opportunities for students to offset the cost of tuition with scholarship programs. For the sixth year in a row, GROWMARK awarded 15 scholarships of $1,500 per student to students pursuing two and four-year degrees in agriculture-related fields. 

“We are pleased to provide financial support to these fifteen outstanding students,” said Amy Bradford, GROWMARK Manager, Corporate Communications and Manager of the GROWMARK Foundation. “Their pursuit of higher education in agriculture will position them well to potentially become a part of the GROWMARK System in the future, whether that may be employed at GROWMARK or an FS member cooperative, or as a farmer-owner of their local cooperative.”

GROWMARK is an agricultural cooperative that provides agronomy, energy, facility engineering and construction, and logistics products and services. They also offer grain marketing and risk management services. The GROWMARK Foundation was formed in 2005 as a not-for-profit charity organization. Their mission is to support agriculture industry vitality through leadership development and education.
