Do you know any students looking for money to pay for college?

Applications for the Jerry Minore Memorial Scholarship program are due Dec. 1, 2012, to the National Wheat Foundation offices.

For the 2013-2014 academic year, four scholarships are available, two for $1,500 each and two for $1,000 each.

To qualify for the scholarships, students must be freshmen, sophomores or juniors pursuing agriculture-related degrees at an accredited institution and either be a member of NAWG, have a close relative who is a member or NAWG or be nominated by a national or state wheat association board member.

The scholarship application requires an information form, two letters of recommendation, a current transcript and a response to one of two short essay questions.

Winners of the 2013-2014 scholarships will be notified and announced next spring.

The scholarship program honors Jerry Minore, a longtime friend and advocate of wheat who passed away suddenly early this year. The Foundation’s partner in the Minore Scholarship program is BASF, Minore’s longtime employer.
