The Soy Scholarship is a one-time award presented to a high school senior who plans to pursue agriculture as an area of study at any accredited college or university during the 2020-21 academic year. The scholarship is managed by ASA and made possible through a grant by BASF Corp. High school seniors may apply online through Dec. 1.
“We are grateful to our partner BASF for continuing to support future agriculture leaders,” ASA President Davie Stephens said in a news release. “Investing in talented students who are pursuing careers in ag provides tools to help them achieve their goals and ensures the future of our industry.”
ASA and BASF have recognized students for their hard work and interest in agriculture through the Soy Scholarship since 2008.
The scholarship is awarded in $2,500 increments (one per semester) for the 2020-21-school year. The student must maintain successful academic progress and be in good standing with the college or university to receive the full scholarship amount.
Final selection will be made at the beginning of January by a committee of soybean grower-leaders. The student will be notified by mid-January, with an official announcement to follow and a presentation scheduled in the spring. Click here for more details.
