Mass Mutual and CHS Foundation Scholarships

Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance

Scholarship Name: Mass Mutual Scholars Program
Description: Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance (usually known simply as “Mass Mutual”) takes education very seriously, and works to alleviate the burden associated with going to college. As such, the company offers two distinct scholarship opportunities through the Mass Mutual Scholars program, one for high school seniors, and the other for current students. Through the “College-Bound” program, high school seniors can apply for up to $5,000 in free money for college if they plan on attending school in Massachusetts, and currently reside in either Hartford County, CT or Hampden County, MA. Current students can also apply for scholarships if they are at least sophomore status (this includes 5th year seniors) if they are of African American, Hispanic, Asian and Pacific Islander decent and plan to study business, finance, management, marketing, sales, economics or financial planning. These students must reside within the metropolitan areas of Atlanta, Chicago, Central New Jersey, Denver, Houston, Miami, Los Angeles, San Antonio or San Francisco.

CHS Foundation

Scholarship Name: CHS Foundation Scholarships
Description: CHS (not sure exactly what these letters stand for) is a leader in the field of agribusiness and agriculture. Like so many agri-companies that are seeing smaller and smaller numbers of your people taking an interest in agriculture, CHS (through their charitable arm, the CHS Foundation) are offering incentives to students of all ages who are studying (or will study) agriculture in college or university. The CHS Foundation scholarships really run the gamut of students, with opportunities to free college money for high school seniors, two-year college students, and four-year university students. All students need to show a commitment to agriculture (especially agricultural cooperatives) to be eligible, but each scholarship type does come with its own set of guidelines. For example, the University Scholarship Program (for four-year university students) is only available to students at participating universities (the schools are listed on the CHS Foundation website).
Amount: $1,000
Awards per Year: more than 150
Award is Open to: High School Seniors, Undergraduate Students
Major/Field of Study: Agriculture, Agribusiness
How to Apply/Contact: A complete listing of guidelines and eligibility for each CHS scholarship is available at the CHS Foundation website.
