Are you in college majoring in an ag-related field? Here's an opportunity to get some of that education paid for -- and get some face-to-face time with hundreds of like-minded individuals during Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Cal.
The National Corn Growers Association and BASF Corp. are again this year awarding five $1,000 scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field.
Applicants for the NCGA Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarship Program must be entering at least their second undergraduate year or any year of graduate study, and they or a parent or legal guardian must be an NCGA member. Scholarship applications must be postmarked on or before December 11, 2009.
As a bonus, recipients and a parent or guardian will enjoy a trip to Anaheim, Cal., to attend a portion of the 2010 Commodity Classic, where they will be recognized and have an opportunity to tour the trade show and sit in on educational sessions.
Complete details and a scholarship application are available from NCGA.
