CentralStar is committed to investing in the next generation of agriculture leaders. Each year the cooperative awards several scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary education in agricultural majors.
The applicant must be presently enrolled in a four-year college or a one- or two-year technical college or short-course program in an agricultural-related field OR be a high school senior admitted into one of the aforementioned programs. Also, the applicant or their parent(s) must be a stockowner of CentralStar Cooperative.
Seven (7) winners will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Two of the scholarships are designated for technical-school or short-course students, if two applicants fall in this category and meet the stockowner requirement. Winners will receive notification of their award via e-mail in July or August. Checks are made payable to the university or technical school. If you’re a winner, expect the money to pay for your fall semester. The deadline was June 1, 2023.
