Deadline to apply for $5,000 MCGA scholarship is Friday

The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) is offering a $5,000 scholarship to two future agricultural leaders enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student during the fall 2019 semester. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is Friday at 4:30 p.m.

MCGA scholarship applicants must be a Young Adult member of MCGA who is working toward a degree in an agriculture-related field.

The Young Adult membership, available to ages 16-24, was launched last year for future agricultural leaders who would like to participate in grassroots advocacy today. Along with reduced member dues, Young Adult Members stay up to date on the latest in Minnesota’s corn sector, as well as have access to great networking and leadership opportunities.

  • Dakota/Rice
  • Nobles
  • Norman
