Good news for college students, or maybe their parents? Every year the Minnesota Corn Growers Association has offered two $5,000 scholarships for Minnesota students that are pursuing a career in agriculture. This year the Minnesota Corn Growers Association will be offering four $5,000 scholarships. Minnesota corn growers are investing in our next generation of agricultural leaders!

The applications are due on January 8, 2121 with the application live at the website: College student applicants have to be a Young Adult Member of the Minnesota Corn Growers and be working to a degree in an agriculture related field. The Young Adult Membership was developed for future agriculture leaders that would like to participate in a grassroots organization. Minnesota Corn Grower Young Adult members can be between the ages of 16 to 24.

"Our Ag Sector offers endless opportunities for the next generation, and it is important to do what we can to support students pursuing a career in agriculture, whether it is on the farm, in the lab or behind a desk," said Minnesota Corn Growers Association President Tim Waibel said. "We are proud to be able to help even more students this year, and encourage all future ag leaders to apply."
