MaxYield Cooperative Expands $1000 Ag Scholarship Program

MaxYield Cooperative announced today details of their scholarship program for area college students and graduating high school seniors. MaxYield has increased its scholarship offering to six $1000 scholarships to students who are in pursuit of a degree in agriculture.

“The purpose of the scholarship program is to encourage area youth to pursue and prepare for careers in agriculture. In 2015, we will increase our commitment, now awarding up to six scholarships,” stated Chad Meyer, Client Relations Director for MaxYield.

Applications are available at area high schools, local community colleges, and any MaxYield Cooperative location. 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, 2014.

MaxYield Cooperative serves nearly 2000 members in 18 communities, with about 150 employees. For additional information on the MaxYield scholarship program, contact any MaxYield location.
