Five (5) one thousand dollar ($1,000) scholarships are available to students entering at least their second undergraduate year (or any year of graduate school) pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in an agricultural, agribusiness, or an ag vocation field.
Applicants or a parent/guardian must be a member of the NCGA.  Funds are for the 2014-2015 school year.  Past scholarship winners and employees and the families of employees of any division of BASF or their subsidiaries or the NCGA are not eligible for the scholarship.

Please send this information on to students, educators, university staff, or anyone in your community who you believe would be interested.
The NCGA-BASF college scholarship program has been named in honor of Ohio farmer William C. Berg.  A retired postal worker and farmer for more than 40 years, Bill served in various positions for both the Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association and the National Corn Growers Association.  He served as a judge for the NCGA-BASF scholarship program for its first five years and recommended many important adjustments to it that have ensured its continued success and enhanced the experience of the scholarship recipients. Bill passed away unexpectedly in 2012 and NCGA and Ohio Corn wished to honor his legacy. Program recipients can be proud to receive a scholarship honoring this staunch supporter of modern American agriculture.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Oct. 8: The National Corn Growers Association and BASF Corporation will again award five $1,000 scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field during the 2014-15 school year.
“NCGA understands that to remain successful as an industry we must focus on education and keeping our best and brightest interested in ag,” said Tom Haag, chairman of NCGA’s Grower Services Action Team. “This program is an important component of NCGA’s commitment to fostering youth in agriculture and to the future of our rural communities.  It is an investment in not only their future but also our own.”

Berg Academic Excellence in Agriculture Scholarship Program must be entering at least their second undergraduate year or any year of graduate study, and they or a parent or legal guardian must be an NCGA member.

Scholarship recipients will be selected in early 2014. Recipients and a parent or guardian will enjoy travel and lodging to attend the 2014 Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas, to be recognized at the NCGA Banquet and have the opportunity to learn more about modern agriculture.
