High school students wanting to study agriculture in college are encouraged to apply for one of 100 scholarships being offered by the CHS Foundation, which is funded by charitable gifts from CHS Inc., the nation's leading farmer-owned cooperative.
High school students will be awarded $1,000 scholarships as they enter their freshman year of college in the fall.
In total for 2017, the CHS Foundation will award nearly 300 scholarships to students studying agriculture or STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) fields of study with an interest in agriculture or energy industry careers.
High school scholarship applications must be submitted by March 31. An independent external review committee will select recipients based on essays, transcripts and reference letters.
"The CHS Foundation is committed to supporting the next generation of agricultural leaders," says Mark Biedenfeld, foundation president. "These students are the future of our industry, and we are proud to support them as they begin their education and career exploration in agriculture."
The CHS Foundation supports nearly 200 additional scholarships that are available to existing college students pursuing ag-related degrees. These scholarships are directly administered by more than 30 partnering universities throughout the U.S., and application deadlines vary by school.
