As this post is being prepared, the 2018 Murray Wise Associates Scholarship winners are being notified of their awards. The MWA Foundation provides scholarships annually to selected students, who have submitted impressive applications that are then voted on by the Foundation Board. Provided they remain in good academic standing in an agriculturally related field of study, these scholarships are annually renewable.
This year, the Foundation received more than 200 applicants. Sixty percent of the applications were submitted by graduating high school seniors, with the balance coming from undergraduate college students. Applicants from 33 states applied and represented students from nearly 100 colleges and universities across the country.
The diverse range of majors represented in the applicant pool -- from agribusiness to ag education, from ag engineering to agronomy, from animal sciences to ag policy, and beyond -- show the breadth of topics about which the next generation of agriculturalists are passionate. These bright young people have demonstrated scholarship, community involvement and a commitment to agriculture. They are exactly the sort of future leaders the MWA Foundation was established to assist.
If you are interested or are aware of a student who may qualify for this scholarship in the future, email email@example.com to be notified when applications for the 2019 awards become available in January.

Brooke Didier Starks with Meyer Capel says, "Plans that irrevocably lock farmland in arrangements for extensive years eventually run the risk of resulting in unrealistic outcomes."
