Each year, students planning to enroll as a full time student in an agricultural college program at a Midwest college, and who are dependents of NEW Cooperative members or employees are eligible to apply to receive a scholarship. This includes graduating high school seniors, as well as college freshmen thru juniors. NEW Cooperative General Manager Dan Dix states “These students are the future of our agriculture industry. We are proud to support them in their college journey and can’t wait to see what they accomplish in the future.”
