Students wishing to apply for the Nation Corn Growers Association Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarship, sponsored by BASF, must submit a completed application postmarked no later than this Friday, December 11, 2009. The AEA Scholarship program awards five $1,000 grants to under-graduates and graduate students pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field. Scholarship recipients will be selected in early 2010.
Applicants 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. Recipients and a parent or guardian will enjoy travel and lodging to attend a portion of the 2010 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Calif. to be recognized at the NCGA Banquet and have the opportunity to learn more about modern agriculture. This is the third year for the partnership between BASF and NCGA.
