The Responsible Nutrient Management Foundation is pleased to offer scholarships in the amount of $2,500 available to students attending an agriculture-related program at a post-secondary educational institution in the U.S. during the 2015-2016 school year.
This scholarship opportunity is the result of a cooperative commitment between Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers, AgXcel, Ag PhD, Capello USA, Hagie Mfg., Midwest Labs, No-Till Farmer newsletter, PNC Bank, RFD-TV and TapLogic. It is intended to further the education of students who demonstrate the ability to clearly articulate the importance of responsible nutrient management, not only for the future of the agricultural industry, but also for culture as a whole.
“Equipping the leaders of tomorrow with an understanding of the delicate balance between high-production agriculture and environmental stewardship will be critical as agriculture strives to more efficiently and sustainably produce food and fiber to feed and clothe the world,” says Troy Bancroft, President and CEO of Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers. “The Responsible Nutrient Management Foundation is committed to the future of agriculture and the youth who represent its leadership, and believe this scholarship will help bring accomplished students closer to their goal of a career in agriculture.”
Interested students may access the scholarship application at rnmf.org/scholarship. The application deadline is June 30.
