Easy Agriculture Scholarships in Cotton can’t go Unclaimed

“King Cotton” may no longer rule the South, but he still provides students in southern states with a unique chance for some easy agriculture scholarships through the “My Future in Cotton Scholarship”. Don’t allow these simple qualifying scholarships to go unclaimed, because the scholarship conditions are easy.

If you’re a high school student who lives in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, you may qualify for this unusual chance to help pay the tuition expenses for your college degree!

This agricultural scholarships award is funded through the Monsanto scholarship program, so if you or a relative work for this company or one of its agencies, you aren’t able to apply. Students with family members or who are employed by competitors of Monsanto also are not eligible.

If this doesn’t apply to you, it’s time to get started with your application. The 2009 award winners have already been announced, so high school juniors, it’s up to you to get the ball rolling and prevent any of the 2010 scholarship from going unclaimed!

To be eligible for the My Future in Cotton agriculture scholarship, you have to maintain a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.8. You don’t have to enroll in a four-year degree program, either. You can choose an Associate Degree or Bachelor Degree program, as long as you are planning to attend full-time and the college is accredited. These qualifications allow this award to be an easy scholarship to acquire.

To win a scholarship for agriculture, students must be pursuing a major that focuses on agriculture or farming. In addition, you have to be directly involved in the business of cotton production. Students who are also members of farming organizations, such as the Future Farmers of America, also have an edge on their competition, so keep in contact with the other members of your farming community so you don’t miss out.

Yes, to win this agricultural scholarship, you have to write an essay, but you have nine months to perfect your submission. Applications are usually accepted in the fall of each year, around October, so start looking for the deadline date early. Nine winners were chosen in 2009, and their names were announced at the Beltwide Cotton Conferences in San Antonio, Texas, earlier this month.

The judges choose applicants based primarily on their essays, but also factor in community service. About one-fifth of each student’s overall score is based on community involvement in farming and cotton production, so if you are heavily involved in the farming community, you have a good shot at becoming a winner of these unusual and easy scholarships for agriculture students!

In year 2008, eight young men and one young lady were chosen to receive this $1,000 college tuition award. Students such as Katherine Paige Thigpen of Georgia, Joshua Dane More of Arizona, and Scott Thomas Landers of Texas were chosen to receive this unique scholarship in agriculture. So if you’re interested in studying agriculture in college, don’t let your chance to join their ranks be wasted – get your application materials together, and get started on your agricultural essay today!
