America’s Farmers Grow Ag Leaders, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, partners with farmers to award rural youth $1,500 scholarships to support their studies in ag-related fields after high school. Farmers play a fundamental role in Grow Ag Leaders by promoting the opportunity to local students and endorsing applications. This year, more than a half-million dollars in scholarships were awarded to students across the country. Grow Ag Leaders scholarships are available in a variety of fields including: farming, agronomy, education, science, technology, business, communications and more.
