CHS Foundation now accepting scholarship applications
High school students are invited to apply for a $1,000 scholarship from the CHS Foundation, the major giving entity of CHS. More than 300 scholarships are expected to be awarded, 100 of which will be given to high school students pursuing agricultural-related degrees at colleges and universities across the country. Students pursuing a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) field of study with an interest in agriculture will also be considered.
"Last year, CHS awarded 240 scholarships to agriculture students at 80 colleges across the United States," says William Nelson, president, CHS Foundation and vice president, CHS Corporate Citizenship. "In 2015, CHS will build on its commitment to developing future leaders by awarding more than 300 scholarships to agriculture students throughout the United States and Canada."
The high school scholarship application deadline is April 1, 2015. An independent, external committee will select scholarship recipients based on essays, transcripts and reference letters.
In addition to the 100 high school scholarships, CHS will award more than 200 scholarships to students currently enrolled in an agricultural-related degree at partnering two- and four-year colleges throughout the United States and Canada. Application deadlines vary by university.
