NCGA Seeks Scholarship Applicants

NCGA Seeks Scholarship Applicants

Sixth annual scholarship program will award five $1,000 scholarships

The National Corn Growers Association and BASF Corporation will again award five $1,000 scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field during the 2013-14 school year.

"NCGA understands that to remain successful as an industry we must focus on agricultural education and fighting the rural 'brain drain'," said Brandon Hunnicutt, chairman of NCGA's Grower Services Action Team. "This program is an important component of NCGA's commitment to fostering youth in agriculture and to the future of our rural communities.  It is an investment in the future of our industry."

Sixth annual scholarship program will award five $1,000 scholarships

Applicants for the NCGA Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarship Program must be entering at least their second undergraduate year or any year of graduate study, and they or a parent or legal guardian must be an NCGA member. Scholarship applications must be postmarked on or before Dec. 7.

Scholarship recipients will be selected in early 2013. Recipients and a parent or guardian will enjoy travel and lodging to attend a portion of the 2013 Commodity Classic in Kissimmee, Fla., to be recognized at the NCGA Awards Banquet and have the opportunity to learn more about modern agriculture.

This is the sixth year for the partnership between BASF and NCGA. Click here for the complete rules and application packet.
