Scholarship Programs Expanded: Apply Now!

The National Corn Growers Association will accept applications for a broad variety of college and graduate programs but act now. Applications are due on December 4, 2020.


NCGA will award five $1,000 scholarships to students attending technical school and community college. Students can be enrolled in any degree or certification program. The committee realized that not every student wants or needs to attend a four-year university to be successful in their community.


Students pursuing an advanced degree or working on their doctorate degree can apply for one $2,500 award plus the opportunity to attend NCGA’s Corn Utilization and Technology Conference in 2021.


The monetary award for the NCGA William C. Berg Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarship Program, which is sponsored by BASF, was expanded to $1,500 in 2019 and is available exclusively to undergraduate students pursuing degrees in any subject area. 


To be eligible for all three scholarship programs, the student or their parent or legal guardian must be an NCGA member. Scholarship applications must be received by December 4, 2020. Like last year, all scholarship applications will be completed online.


Scholarship recipients will be selected in early 2021. The complete rules and application can be found on our website.
