Cargill Launches the 2013-2014 Competition of the Cargill Global Scholars Program
Cargill and the Institute of International Education (IIE) are pleased to announce the launch of the 2013-2014 Cargill Global Scholars Program application cycle.
We deeply valued our partnership with Purdue University in the first year of the program and hope to continue this partnership in the program’s second year. As a partner university, your first and second year undergraduate students who demonstrate exemplary academic achievement, leadership potential and study in a field relevant to Cargill’s world of food, agriculture and risk management are eligible to apply.
In addition to an annual scholarship award of $2,500 for up to three years, the Cargill Global Scholars Program provides leadership development opportunities through seminars, networking events, and a one-on-one mentoring program with executives from Cargill. These enrichment activities have been designed to help foster and enhance the Cargill Global Scholars’ leadership potential and critical thinking skills, and equip them with the tools necessary for becoming global leaders and decisions makers.
In the United States 10 scholarships will be awarded during the 2013-2014 academic year.
Students specializing in any of the following areas are encouraged to apply:
- Agriculture Related Field
- Computer Science
