American Soybean Association Seeks Candidates for Soy Scholarship

The American Soybean Association (ASA) wants to give a scholarship to a high school senior interested in pursuing agriculture.

The Soy Scholarship is a $5,000 one-time award presented to a high school senior who plans to pursue agriculture as an area of study at any accredited college or university in the 2018-19 academic year. The scholarship is managed by ASA and made possible through a grant by BASF Corporation. High school seniors may apply online Sept. 11-Nov. 20, 2017.  Click here to apply.

The scholarship is awarded in $2,500 increments (one per semester) for the 2018-19 school year. The student must maintain successful academic progress and be in good standing with the college or university to receive the full amount of the scholarship.

Final selection will be made in early December during the ASA Board meeting. The student will be notified mid-December, with an official announcement made during Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Feb. 27 – March 1, 2018.

In addition to the scholarship, BASF will provide the winner and one parent or guardian with a trip to attend Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Calif., where they will receive special recognition at the BASF booth on Tuesday and the ASA Awards Banquet on Wednesday night of Commodity Classic.
