College students and high school seniors looking for help in funding college expenses can submit an application for a Westchester Foundation scholarship by March 1. Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors accepted for enrollment or students already enrolled at an accredited college, university or community college in a course of study related to ag or agribusiness.
The Westchester Foundation was established by Murray Wise, Founder and CEO of the Westchester Group Inc., with a mission to enhance the future of American ag by helping to ensure a steady supply of bright, dedicated, well-educated leaders. Students are selected based on academic qualifications, community and school involvement, leadership potential and financial need.
Provided the students maintain acceptable grade-point averages, the scholarship can be renewed annually for up to four years, generally at a minimum of $1,000/year. Download applications at www.westchester-group.com.
