Spring means deadlines for scholarship applications.
Here are a few scholarship opportunities open to students who will be studying agriculture or come from agricultural backgrounds.
Herb Clutter Memorial Scholarship. Applications are open for the 2022 Herb Clutter Memorial Scholarship, continuing a proud Kansas Association of Wheat Growers tradition to support the future of the Kansas wheat industry. The $1,000 scholarship is open to high school seniors who graduate in 2022, with applications due March 18.
Herbert W. Clutter was a farmer from Holcomb and the first president of the National Association of Wheat Growers, which was established in 1948. Clutter encouraged Kansas wheat farmers to organize as a strong, unified voice, which led to the formation of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers in 1952. He was also instrumental in the formation of the Kansas Wheat Commission by the Kansas Legislature in 1957.
The scholarship fund will award one $1,000 scholarship per year to a college or university-bound incoming freshman from Kansas pursuing a career in the field of agriculture.
