The 2019 M.A.C.C. AG SCHOLARSHIP application is now available!
Consider your last trip to the grocery store. Did you think about where the apples and corn came from? How about how the grade of beef or pork was determined? The answer is probably no but for those majoring in agriculture, finding answers to those questions is part of the curriculum for both undergraduate and graduate students. The interaction between humans, natural resources and livestock is at the program’s core but that doesn’t mean all agriculture majors are destined to work on farms. Required classes often include chemistry, biology and economics and, depending on the concentration you select – plant pathology, agricultural engineering and community and economic development are a few – myriad career opportunities await after college.
To be considered for the MACC AG Scholarship you must be a resident of or attend school in Chippewa County, and pursuing a career in agriculture, or a career that will impact or contribute to agriculture or the rural economy, to be considered for this scholarship program. The information requested on the from must be provided in full. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Application MUST be returned by March 15, 2019 to the Chamber office at 321 So. 1 St Street, Montevideo MN.
