NCGA Offers Valuable College Scholarships: December 1st Deadline
The National Corn Growers Association and BASF Corporation are now accepting applications for five $1,000 scholarships to be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field during the 2018-19 school year. While these scholarships are open to any NCGA members and their children or legal guardians, all submissions must be postmarked on or before December 1, 2017 for consideration.
“Building the leaders of tomorrow is essential to NCGA’s work to build a productive, sustainable and profitable corn industry,” said John Linder, chair of the Engaging Members Committee. “Our partnership with BASF helps ease the financial pressures these students face in pursuing their degree and, in doing so, helps ensure the brightest minds remain engaged in agriculture.”
Applicants for the NCGA William C.

Students may apply for membership in order to participate. Scholarship applications must be postmarked on or before December 1, 2017.
Scholarship recipients will be selected in early 2018. Recipients and a parent or guardian will enjoy travel and lodging to attend the 2018 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, California, to be recognized at the NCGA Banquet and have the opportunity to learn more about modern agriculture.
