Local Ag Scholarships Available; Securing the Future of Agriculture

April 16, 2013

Agricultural Scholarships are typically awarded to students interested in pursuing a career in agriculture.  More and more have become available due to a need for new positions increasing in ag and production.  Some are offered as a donation, a memorial or even as to be a proactive player in a local community.

We are excited to share some Ag Scholarships that are available in our area with thanks to these great local companies!

Harvestland from Morgan, MN is happy to promote and share two Ag Scholarships; one from Mn Grain & Feed and one from Cooperative Network.

“With the future in the hands of the next generation, it is important for every young adult to have the sky as their limit and not be burdened with financial hardships just to receive an education.
