Mountain Valley Seed Co

Each year, we offer two $1000 scholarships to college students involved in the agricultural sciences. We encourage students in both graduate and undergraduate programs to apply for this scholarship, which will allow them to showcase the skills and knowledge they’ve learned in their agriculture-related field. We want applicants to demonstrate their knowledge with confidence while fulfilling the requirements for this scholarship. Overall, our aim is to encourage students to exercise what they have learned while bettering the world around them.

      • General Notes:  The scholarship is very non-intrusive (does not require private information or personal history about the student). It is open to both full-time and part-time, currently-enrolled students, new students and/or graduating seniors. This scholarship will be offered twice a year for the fall and winter semester.
