Nancy Talbott, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Annie’s Homegrown Agriculture
Right now, almost all of us have a mental countdown of the number of days till winter break. By now you’re probably exhausted, and dreaming about full nights of sleep and home cooked meals. Even though there’s a lot going on, make sure to stay focused, and look for scholarships that will help you achieve your long term goals.
Maybe your goal is to make this planet healthy and sustainable. Maybe your goal is to rise above disadvantages and statistics. Maybe you never had the chance to go to college when you where eighteen, and want a fresh start later in life. Whatever your situation and goals are, there is a scholarship out there for you. So keep looking, and do not put it off until break. Here are a couple deadlines coming up.
1. Annie’s Homegrown Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship: Up to $10,000
This healthy food company is very supportive of anyone who supports a healthy planet. As Annie says; “Planet to Food. Food to People. People to Planet. We believe that healthy soils and healthy farms are the foundation for healthy foods, which help make healthy people! Therefore, we’re proud to support the next generation of farmers.” This scholarship is for current college undergrad or graduate students majoring in sustainable agriculture. Email the online application, and mail supporting materials to Annie’s Homegrown Scholarship Committee.
Deadline: December 15 (this scholarship may no longer be offered)
2. HSF/General College Scholarships: $1,000 – $5,000
U.S. Census Bureau reports show that out of all racial/ethnic groups Latinos have the lowest rate for High School and College Completion. The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is fighting to reverse this pattern, by offering College scholarships to help Hispanic students obtain their degrees. Students must be of Hispanic heritage, have a 3.0 GPA, be a full time student, and apply for federal Financial Aid through FAFSA.
Deadline: December 15
