Agriculture student scholarship available.

EAST LANSING — GreenStone Farm Credit Services is now accepting applications through March 1, 2019 for its scholarship program. The cooperative will once again award up to $40,000 to incoming college freshmen pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field.

Since 2010, the association has presented more than $215,000 in undergraduate college scholarships to the industry’s next generation of leaders.

Students attending a four-year college program can earn a $2,000 scholarship, while $1,000 awards will go to selected students attending a two-year college program.

To qualify, applicants must reside within the association’s territory, which includes Michigan and select counties in northeastern Wisconsin; must be a full-time high school graduating senior; have at least a 3.0 grade point average; and plan to study an agriculture-related field. In addition, applicants should demonstrate participation and leadership in school, community and agricultural activities.

“Providing financial support for higher education to today’s youth will help develop and cultivate strong future leaders,” said Dave Armstrong, GreenStone President and CEO. “These scholarships enable deserving students to pursue their dreams, and strengthen the future of our rural communities and agriculture.”

Applications must be postmarked by March 1, 2019 and arrive at GreenStone’s corporate office in East Lansing no later than March 8. Payment will be made after GreenStone receives a transcript identifying a successful completion of the first semester.
