To support education in agriculture at all levels, GreenStone Farm Credit Services is once again awarding up to $40,000 to incoming college freshmen pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field.
Applications are now being accepted and must be received by February 29, 2020. Students attending a four-year college program can earn a $2,000 scholarship, while $1,000 awards will go to selected students attending a two-year college program.
Since 2010, GreenStone has presented nearly $300,000 in undergraduate college scholarships to the agriculture’s next generation of leaders.
“Providing financial support for higher education to today’s youth will help develop and cultivate strong future leaders,” said Dave Armstrong, GreenStone President and CEO. “These scholarships enable deserving students to pursue their dreams and strengthen the future of our rural communities and agriculture.”
Scholarship applicants must reside within GreenStone’s territory, which includes Michigan and select counties in northeastern Wisconsin; must be a full-time high school graduating senior; have at least a 3.0 grade point average; and plan to study an agriculture-related field. In addition, applicants should demonstrate participation and leadership in school, community and agricultural activities.
