Kansas Grain and Feed Association Awards More Than $25,000 in Scholarships to KS High School Students

Kansas Grain and Feed Association’s (KGFA) scholarship committee met in Wichita at the association’s 123rd Annual Meeting in early April and awarded more than $25,000 in scholarships to Kansas high school graduating seniors for the 2019-20 academic year.

The scholarship committee, comprised of KGFA’s membership, received 255 applications and awarded 19 students scholarships to assist in advancing their academic endeavors.

“We are very proud of the KGFA scholarship program that has helped so many people throughout the state for so many years,” KGFA’s president and CEO Ron Seeber said.

“The association, its board and members take tremendous pride each spring investing in students and helping them pursue their education.”

The KGFA scholarship program has awarded countless deserving high school and college students funds necessary to pursue agriculture-related fields of study since its inception in 1976.

The scholarships are open to graduating Kansas high school seniors who are planning to attend any Kansas four-year university, community college or technical school.
