Feed Energy announced today that for the fourth consecutive year it is offering two $2,500 "Excellence in Ag" scholarships to students studying agriculture at a college or university in the Midwest. Interested students can find more information and apply for the scholarship by clicking here: Scholarship Application. The application deadline is April 30, 2015.
To be eligible students must meet specific requirements, including attending a college or university in one of the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota or South Dakota. They must have an agriculture-related major, be a sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student, and have a 3.0 to 4.0 GPA. The two scholarship recipients will be chosen based on their references, resume and a two-page essay.
"We are proud to offer the Scholarship because we believe funding ag education is critical for the future of so many areas of our society," said Joseph P. Riley, Executive Vice President. "By supporting our students as they develop knowledge in the many different aspects of agriculture, we can indirectly contribute to the larger bio-economy, particularly in the Midwest."
