ProVision Partners Cooperative - Scholarships
Annually, ProVision Partners Cooperative offers scholarships to youth from area high schools. Students applying for these scholarships must be graduating seniors in our trade territories in Wisconsin, enrolled in the short-course program or a two- or four-year curriculum in the fall. Applicants must also supply general information about themselves, explain why they are interested in their chosen career path, and tell why they feel cooperatives are important.
Applicants will be scored on their scholastic achievement, leadership, written essay questions and perceived ability to contribute to the future of their chosen career path.
"The increasing need for specialization in agriculture makes a variety of agricultural career options possible. Our goal is to encourage more young people to pursue these careers," says Rob Larson, General Manager.
ProVision Partners Cooperative is a farm supply cooperative serving over 12,000 patrons in both the farm and urban markets of Marathon, Wood, Portage, Taylor and Clark counties and beyond and is a proud supporter of area youth.
The scholarship deadline is March 31st of each year.
