ISA, with funding from the soybean checkoff, is investing in the future of agriculture. Offering up to 10 scholarships worth $4,000 each for the school year, we encourage crop science majors entering their junior year to apply. Studies must be completed at one of Illinois' four ag universities:
Illinois State University (ISU)
Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC)
University of Illinois (UI)
Western Illinois University (WIU)
To be eligible, all applicants must be students beginning their junior year or transfer students enrolling in one of the participating schools as a junior. Students interested in applying for the scholarship must plan to follow an agricultural course of study with a major in crop production or a crop science discipline -- including breeding, biotechnology, plant pathology, weed management or crop management -- with an emphasis on soybeans. Awarding of scholarships will be based on exceptional academic ability, leadership and financial need, and the individuals who receive the scholarships also will be encouraged to find on-campus employment in soybean research, attend graduate school and choose a career in soybean research.
