CALL FOR 2019 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICANTS!!
The NC Strawberry Association’s Scholarship Program continues to grow! Our award began with two $500 awards in 2011, and the program has had the good fortune of growing a little bit each year. NCSA currently offers three $2,000 awards to be given in 2019. Funds for the scholarship come from member dues – $2 per membership – and funds raised at the auction during the Strawberry Expo. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to our silent or live auction at the 2018 Strawberry Expo in Winston-Salem, NC.
The intent of this scholarship is to promote future leadership in the strawberry industry. Applicants should be high school seniors or current college students accepted to or currently enrolled in a land grant university who are interested in or have declared a major in a program of study directly related to the strawberry industry (for example, small fruit production, marketing, food science, nutrition, entomology, agronomy, etc.). Applications from family members of NCSA members, both in North Carolina and in other states, are encouraged.
The application must be emailed or postmarked on or before May 1, 2019.
