EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - College students can apply for some financial help from the Soybean Industry.
The Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee (MSPC) is offering scholarships to students enrolled at MSU in their Crop and Soil Science program.
Applicants must be undergraduate full-time students in their junior or senior year and have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.
Interested students can apply through the MSPC scholarship and grand department.
The deadline to apply is February 21, 2018.
“It is critical that the soybean industry in Michigan maintain a highly educated and motivated workforce. Students will provide expertise and innovative ideas that can be used on our farms and processing facilities to improve efficiency and productivity. Using checkoff funds to support and encourage students is an investment in our future,” stated Laurie Isley, MSPC director and farmer from Palmyra.
The Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee’s (MSPC) mission statement is to manage checkoff resources to increase return on investment for Michigan soybean farmers while enhancing sustainable soybean production. MSPC believes that part of that investment needs to be with college students interested in a career in the soybean industry.
