United Cooperative Offering Students Scholarship Money
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/19/2015

The Beaver Dam-based United Cooperative is offering 30 $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are looking to use their education to pursue a career in either an agricultural or non-agricultural field.

The company says at least seven of the scholarships will be awarded to students majoring in an agricultural field, and at least three will be awarded to students attending a short course or technical school. The remainder is available to all majors.

Applicants will be judged on their leadership skills, scholastic achievement, extra curricular activities, motivation, and academic and personal goals. To be eligible, the student or the parent must be a patron member of United Cooperative; the student must attend an accredited college, university, or technical school; and the student must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.

The scholarships will be paid upon receipt of transcript showing completion of the first semester and proof of registration for the second semester.

The scholarship application deadline is March 3. For more information, call 800-924-2991.
