CHS Foundation Awards $75,000 In Scholarships

The CHS Foundation has awarded 75 $1,000 scholarships to college students studying agriculture. This year’s recipients include 50 high school seniors and 25 two-year college students from 28 states. The CHS Foundation is the major giving entity of CHS Inc., a farmer-owned cooperative and a global energy, grains and foods company.

“The CHS Foundation values the opportunity to help build the next generation of leaders in the production, science, technology and business of agriculture,” says William J. Nelson, CHS Foundation president.  “We are proud to support these promising students who will play an important role in shaping the future of agriculture.”
