The GROWMARK Foundation has opened applications for their 2023 scholarships. This year GROWMARK is giving out 55 scholarships, each valued at $2,000.
The 55 available scholarships fall under one of three categories: Agriculture-focused bachelor's degree or higher, Agriculture-focused associate degree or certification, or Business-focused bachelor's degree or higher.
Scholarships are only available to graduating high school students or current university/college students in the United States or Ontario.
Selection of recipients will be made by a committee of individuals outside of the GROWMARK systems. Scholarships will be awarded based on academic achievement, school and community involvement, and answers to the 500-word essay questions.
GROWMARK’s goal with these scholarships is to support young leaders in agriculture. “GROWMARK and the FS member cooperatives are strong supporters of youth leadership education, and this is one more way we can contribute to the future of agriculture” said Amy Bradford, GROWMARK Foundation Manager and Corporate Communications Manager.
