$5,000 MCGA scholarship returns for future ag leaders

The Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) is again providing two statewide scholarships for college students aspiring to become future agricultural leaders.

For the second year, MCGA will offer a $5,000 scholarship to two students who are currently enrolled or will be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student during the fall 2020 semester. The deadline to apply for the statewide scholarship is Jan. 31, 2020.

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 for future agricultural leaders who would like to participate in grassroots advocacy today. Young Adult Members enjoy reduced member dues and stay current on the latest news in Minnesota’s corn sector, as well as have access to great networking and leadership opportunities. Join today at mncorn.org/join.

Applicants can apply for the MCGA scholarship and scholarships offered by local county corn grower organizations at mncorn.org/scholarships. To stay in-the-know on all future scholarship opportunities, subscribe to the Ag Insider at info.mncorn.org/Ag-Insider, a monthly e-newsletter created specifically for young adults. The free e-newsletter delivers the news future leaders need to know from the world of agriculture as they work towards their career.
