The GROWMARK Foundation will provide 15 $1500 scholarships to students pursuing agriculture-related degrees or certificates at colleges, universities, or technical schools in the United States and Ontario, Canada.
At the time of application, students must be high school seniors or the equivalent, or continuing students enrolled in good standing at a college, university, or technical school. Students who have previously received a GROWMARK Foundation scholarship are ineligible to apply again; however, previous applicants who did not receive an award may still apply as long as they meet the other requirements.
Scholarships will be awarded based on information collected in this application, including academic achievement, school and community involvement, and essay responses. Selections will be made by an independent team of agribusiness professionals selected by GROWMARK, and their decision will be final. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the student's account at his or her respective school.
The application should be completed in full online and submitted by the deadline, including submission of a current photograph and your most recent semester's transcript. No incomplete or late applications will be considered. You are encouraged to craft your essay responses in a separate word processing program and copy and paste into this form.
Applications are due by midnight (Central Time) on April 13, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be notified by July 1, 2018. Please direct questions to Karen Jones, 309-557-6184 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
