National Grain and Feed Foundation launches scholarship

Scholarship is in partnership with MANRRS student group

The National Grain and Feed Foundation announces it has launched a scholarship in partnership with the Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) student group.

The Foundation will provide support to MANRRS student members who are engaged in undergraduate or graduate studies in the grain, feed or processing industry or a closely related field at an accredited college or university or to student members pursuing a degree from a technical school focusing on grain handling, feed manufacturing or grain processing facility operations.

“Through the Foundation’s mission to promote education and awareness of our industry, we are pleased to engage young people to make a career in agriculture and agribusiness as well as to encourage diversity and foster inclusive environments within our industry,” said Greg Beck, senior vice president of the grain division at CGB Enterprises Inc., and chairman of the Foundation Board of Trustees. “We are honored to have this opportunity to support MANRRS students as they pursue careers in agriculture and thankful to the generous Foundation donors whose contributions have made this possible. I look forward to partnering with MANRRS to support students as they achieve their goals and contribute to the highest standards of education pertinent to the grain, feed and processing industry.”

MANRRS is a national society established in 1989 that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic groups participating in agricultural and related science careers, with a focus on providing networks to support professional development of minorities.

Established in 1965, the National Grain and Feed Foundation supports public education and research projects that benefit the grain, feed and processing industry, enhance the industry’s presence to the public, and positions it for future growth. The Foundation is funded entirely by voluntary corporate and individual contributions.
