East Lansing—The Michigan Agri-Business Association (MABA) congratulated July 25 the newest recipients of the Michigan Agri-Business Association Educational Trust Scholarship.

MABA awarded nearly $8,300 to 15 recipients to be used towards their school expenses for the upcoming semester.

"These students represent some the best and brightest young people in Michigan's agri-business sector," said Jim Byrum, president of MABA.

"Getting more young people interested in careers in agri-business will not only pay off for these students, but for our state's agriculture sector and economy.

"We congratulate the recipients of this semester's scholarships and look forward to seeing their many accomplishments in the future."

The following individuals were awarded scholarships for the 2013 fall semester:

Established in 1974, The Michigan Agri-Business Association Educational Trust has awarded over $350,000 in scholarships to students involved in curriculums related to agri-business.

The scholarship funds available each year come from the interest received on the Educational Trust Endowment, which is funded by proceeds from several annual fundraising events, including an Educational Trust Golf Outing, the Ed Brown Memorial Classic Golf Outing and other personal and corporate donations.

As a condition of accepting a MABA scholarship, these students agree to participate in an internship with a MABA member.
