Colorado Association of Wheat Growers (CAWG) will award a $1,000 scholarship to a Colorado high school senior. The applicant’s parent, grandparent or legal guardian must be a current or new member of CAWG or the applicant must be nominated by a current sponsor of CAWG. For a list of sponsors, contact the CAWG office at 303-721-3300 or visit the scholarship page at www.coloradowheat.org.

Chris Tallman, CAWG vice president said, “The CAWG scholarship is a great way for our organization to give back to its members. It is important for us to provide every opportunity we can to the young people of rural Colorado.”

The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior planning to attend an accredited college, university, junior college or community college. The student must enter college the same year as their graduation from high school. Students intending to major in agriculture related fields are strongly urged to apply.

The applicant must fill out and return the CAWG scholarship form no later than April 1, 2010. Two one-page essays are required as part of the scholarship program.

The scholarship recipient will be announced in May 2010. The scholarship will be distributed in the summer of 2010 after the recipient provides confirmation of their enrollment in a college or university.
