Two Students Awarded Careers in Agriculture Scholarships

Full Circle Ag Careers in Agriculture Scholarship Program awarded two students with scholarships in 2021. With an emphasis on an agricultural field of study, the recipients were also chosen on demonstrated leadership skills and references from their respective academic instructors. 

As part of the application process, these students were also asked to submit a short essay on why cooperatives are important to agriculture and why they are interested in agriculture as a career. This annual scholarship program is just one way for us to focus on developing future cooperative leaders. The selected recipients are listed below with the college they plan to attend.  

Congratulations to the following 2021 Careers in Ag scholarship recipients! 
We wish them all the best in their future career endeavors.

How to Apply

Scholarship Eligibility
Applicants must live within the Full Circle Ag trade territory to be eligible. Students pursuing a two-year or four-year degree in agronomy or related crop production, or closely related fields are eligible to apply. The Careers in Ag Scholarship is available to high school seniors graduating in 2021 as well as students currently enrolled in college in a two-year or four-year relevant program. Once a student receives the Careers in Ag scholarship, they are no longer eligible to re-apply for an additional scholarship.

How the Selection Process Works
All applicants are critically evaluated using a combination of several criteria including, but not limited to, scholastic achievement, leadership in agriculture, perceived ability to contribute to agriculture in the future, and future career goals. 

Full Circle Ag will closely evaluate the applications and select those that meet the qualifications required.
