The Ohio Soybean Council Foundation (OSCF) is pleased to announce scholarship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The scholarship program encourages undergraduate and graduate students at Ohio colleges and universities to pursue degrees in one of the many academic fields that support the future of the soybean industry including agriculture, business, communication, economics, education, engineering, science and technology.
“In order to ensure the future prosperity of the U.S. soybean industry, it is important that students understand the wide variety of opportunities available in agricultural careers,” said Bill Bateson, OSCF scholarship selection committee member and soybean farmer from Hancock County. “The agriculture workforce hires the best of the best and we want to support those who have an interest in starting careers in agriculture after graduation.”
The 2017-2018 academic year also marks the 10th anniversary for the OSCF scholarship program. Since 2008, the OSCF scholarship program has awarded $266,000 in scholarship funds to 65 students studying agriculture or a related field at Ohio colleges or universities.
