MaxYield Announces $1000 Ag Scholarships

MaxYield Cooperative announced today details of their scholarship program for area college students and graduating high school seniors.  MaxYield will once again offer up to six $1000 scholarships to students who are in pursuit of a degree in agriculture.

“The purpose of the scholarship program is to encourage and provide financial assistance for area youth to pursue and prepare for careers in agriculture.” stated Chad Meyer, client relations/communications director for MaxYield.

Applications are available at area high schools, local community colleges, and any MaxYield Cooperative location.  New this year, the scholarship application form can be completed and submitted online. As a part of the application process, students must submit an essay entitled “Why I selected agriculture as my career.”

Meyer continued, “Often, MaxYield is the largest employer in many of our communities.  We feel we have an obligation to provide opportunities for our children to return to our local communities.  This is one avenue by which we can support that goal.”

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2019.

MaxYield Cooperative serves nearly 1700 members in 24 communities, with 210 team members.  For additional information on the MaxYield scholarship program, contact any MaxYield location.
