The NC Strawberry Association is now accepting applications for scholarships for 2012. The scholarship program accepts applications from high school seniors or current college students accepted to, or currently enrolled in, a land grant university who are interested in or have declared a major in a program of study directly related to the strawberry industry (for example, small fruit production, marketing, food science, nutrition, entomology, agronomy, etc). The award is not limited to North Carolina.
Family members of NC Strawberry Association members are encouraged to apply.
Last year, we awarded two very fine students at NC State University. This year’s award is $750. Full information about the program and links to the scholarship application may be found at http://www.ncstrawberry.com/docs/About2012Scholarship.htm
