The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) thanks BASF for 15 years of partnership in offering scholarships to outstanding undergraduates who plan to use their degrees to benefit the agriculture sector. Through the five William C. Berg Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarships offered through the BASF and NCGA partnerships, industry and association come together to foster the bright young minds which will help find solutions, tools, and support that create a bright future for U.S. corn farmers.
“Their consistent support for this scholarship demonstrates the deep commitment of BASF to fostering the next crop of talented leaders in ag,” said Lowell Neitzel, chair of NCGA’s Member and Consumer Engagement Action Team. “These scholarships aid bright young minds pursuing careers in ag, but they pay back dividends for corn farmers. The innovative thinking, dedication and talent scholarship winners bring will provide generations of critical growth in our industry.”
Renamed to honor Ohio grower and scholarship judge Bill Berg in 2013, the scholarships provided through this program have assisted over 70 students already. It will continue to do so, awarding five scholarships for the fall 2022 academic semester.
