The Missouri Corn Growers Association and Missouri Corn Merchandising Council announced this week that high school seniors and college students can once again apply for college scholarships from the organization. Applicants should be studying (or plan to study) agronomy or a related field in agriculture.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 7, 2014. Other details include:
High school senior applicants must be Missouri residents from a Missouri farm or rural area. They must plan to attend a two- or four-year Missouri college or university and major in agronomy or agriculture-related field. The scholarship funds will apply toward the freshman year of college expenses for high school winners.
College applicants must also be Missouri residents from a Missouri farm or rural area and currently a junior enrolled in a Missouri four-year college or university majoring in agronomy or agriculture-related field.
