GFAI 2014 Scholarships Available

Date Posted: September 26, 2013

GFAI’s Scholarship Committee works each year to raise scholarship dollars for students interested in a career in the grain and feed industry.

A recent survey revealed that nearly 50% of past scholarship recipients are currently working in the industry!

Our efforts are working!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in, supported and sponsored GFAI’s first bowling tournament held this past winter as well as the summer golf outings!

Last year, we awarded nearly $40,000 in scholarships to Illinois students and this amazing feat would not have been possible without the generosity of our members!

Scholarship applications for 2014 are now online so please help us spread the word about these opportunities!

You can:

1. Post the attached flyer at your facility
