    For Immediate Release

    Agriculture Committee Scholarship Applications Open

     
    The Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce’s Agriculture Committee is excited to begin accepting applications for their 2019 Transfer Scholarship. Applicants should be completing their time at Crowder College and transferring onto a four year university to continue their Agriculture specific degree. The scholarship recipient will be awarded $500 in the Fall semester and is eligible for a $500 renewal for the Spring semester as well.
    This will be the 5th year that the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce will award this scholarship to an area student. “Preparing the next generation of leaders for the agriculture industry is a huge task.  Providing opportunities for college students to explore their interests, learn about industry trends and continue their education is a passion for the Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce’s Agriculture Appreciation Committee and we are honored to be a part of helping someone continue to write their story,” Said Ashley Siler, Chamber’s Director of Communication and Membership Development. The scholarship funds are those raised during the annual Agriculture Appreciation Banquet last fall.

    Those interested in applying for the scholarship may email ashley@neoshocc.com or see the Agriculture Department leaders at Crowder College. Deadline for applications to be received is April 26th.
