NEW Cooperative and the NEW Cooperative Foundation will again be awarding $2,000 scholarships to local students pursuing a degree and career in agriculture.

The scholarship program is designed to provide financial assistance to dependents of NEW Cooperative members and full-time employees. Recipients will be selected by an independent committee and selections will be based on outstanding leadership potential and interest in pursuing a future career in agriculture.
