Sorghum Foundation seeking applications for 2014 scholarships

Advertisement

Announcements went out recently to 40 academic faculty in 12 states for the 2014 Sorghum Challenge and Rosenow scholarships.

The Sorghum Challenge is awarded to undergraduate students enrolled in an agriculturally based degree program. The winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship and will have the opportunity to attend the National Sorghum Producers D.C. Fly-In in 2015 to learn more about agricultural policy and regulatory agencies.

The Dr. Darrell Rosenow Memorial Scholarship was established in 2010. Rosenow was a pioneer in hybrid sorghum breeding with a career spanning 40 years as a sorghum plant breeder for Texas AgriLife Research. His dedication to sorghum and those that worked with the crop will be remembered through this scholarship, which is awarded to undergraduate students enrolled in agriculturally-based departments related to agronomy, plant pathology, and plant breeding with an emphasis on sorghum.

Applications are requested by May 31 to allow judging by the National Sorghum Foundation board of directors prior to the 2014-2015 academic year. These scholarships are available to undergrad students enrolled in an agriculturally based department. Applications are available through university departments or by contacting NSF Chair Bruce Maunder at the NSP office or by email at texasgreenbug@aol.com.

An additional scholarship outside the Foundation is given by NSP to an undergrad who has gained experience as a part-time employee in the Kansas State Sorghum Center (all disciplines related to sorghum) with information available from the dean’s office (Christine Wilson) or Gary Pierzynski (agronomy chair).

The Foundation has been especially encouraged by the number of outstanding applicants and recognizes this opportunity to provide support and encouragement to these student leaders dedicated to agriculture.
