March 6, 2023
Each year, nine Husker Harvest Days scholarships — each valued at $1,200 — are offered for students pursuing a postsecondary education in various areas of the field of agriculture.
These scholarships are awarded by the Agricultural Institute of Nebraska, Grand Island Chamber of Commerce and Farm Progress. Here is some information about the scholarships:
Who can apply? These scholarships are academic in nature and are awarded to high school graduating seniors who are pursuing a program or career in agriculture or agribusiness. Financial need may be a consideration in the selection process, but it will not be the determining factor.
Five scholarships must be given to applicants from the counties of Buffalo, Hall, Hamilton, Howard and Merrick. The remaining four scholarships will be awarded statewide and may include the above counties as well.
What are the scholarships worth? The scholarships will pay $1,200 per school year, with $600 paid for the first semester or quarter upon proof of registration and $600 for the second semester or quarter upon proof of maintenance of a 2.5 grade point average during the first semester or quarter, and the second semester proof of registration.
When are applications due? Applications must be postmarked by March 16. No late applications will be accepted. The scholarships will be determined in April.
What are the eligibility requirements? To be eligible, applicants must have a B average or above and must complete the designated scholarship form. Successful applicants must agree to submit a brief summary that describes their first semester participation in college and how this scholarship benefited their education. The scholarships must be used at any accredited university, two- to four-year college or technical school in Nebraska. Applicants must be enrolled in a program relating to agriculture or agribusiness.
