The NEW Cooperative Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2013 Scholarship Program will award at least five $2,000 scholarships to area students. To qualify, the student must be a dependent of a NEW Cooperative member or full-time employee and must be pursuing an agricultural college degree. The scholarships are open to graduating high school seniors, college freshmen, sophomores and juniors. Award recipients will be selected based also on their academic achievements, leadership potential and desire to pursue a future career in agriculture.
