Scholarships for Agriculture Students

You know, more and more of our colleges and universities are offering scholarships to students to study agriculture. It’s hard to count the ways this helps agriculture. Just remember, it wasn’t to many decades ago that farmers were among the poorest educated of all industries. Many had less than a high school diploma.

I don’t know if this is a fact. The University of California is now providing scholarships to those who will specialize in various phases of agriculture. One section will deal with plant breeding. Now, this will provide valuable information to anybody in crop production.

How about a graduate who specializes in soil building, and vegetation management. Any 4 years in agriculture is a career with a good future. Any scholarship is good for any student….anywhere.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner…
