This year 6 scholarships will be awarded to students enrolled for full-time upper education (i.e., college, tech school, etc.) in the fall of 2020. Applications will be reviewed by the MAiZE Advisory Board and winners will be announced by August 7. All applications must be submitted by July 15 to be considered.
Six scholarships will be awarded this year, in the amount of $3000 each, thanks largely to the generosity of MAiZE members via the Corn Party auction and/or private donations. Recipients will receive the funds over a two-year period, with half being paid out the first year and the other half being paid once proof is received of passing grades & enrollment for the second year.
Those eligible to apply include IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS of current MAiZE farm owners, or any FARM EMPLOYEE who has worked on your farm for at least 3 years.
Those who have applied in the past are encouraged to apply again, as long as they have not yet received the scholarship. Past winners of this scholarship are not eligible to apply again.
Applicants must be enrolled to attend college (or other forms of higher education) this fall. Payment will be made directly to your college of choice.
We appreciate all those who contributed to making so many scholarships possible this year.
