The GROWMARK Foundation Announces 2022 Scholarship Recipients

More than 300 students from across North America applied for the award

Bloomington, Ill. (June 23, 2022) – Fifteen agriculture students have been selected as the sixth class of recipients of the GROWMARK Foundation scholarship.

More than 300 students from across the United States and Ontario, Canada, applied for the award. Applications were evaluated by a panel of agribusiness professionals, and the funds are available for the fall 2022 semester.
