The Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) national society on Dec. 1 announced the first winners of the National Grain and Feed Foundation scholarship.
Recipients of the 2021-2022 National Grain and Feed Foundation Scholarship are Catherine Fremaux, North Carolina State University; Ernest Dixon, Alcorn State University; and Kayla Braggs, Florida State A&M University.
The Foundation, which announced the launch of its scholarship in partnership with MANRRS on March 12, is providing three $5,000 competitive scholarships, each of which are renewable for one additional year, as well as the opportunity to meet with hundreds of agribusiness leaders at the National Grain and Feed Association’s annual convention.
Each scholarship recipient is a MANRRS student member engaged in undergraduate or graduate studies in the grain, feed or processing industry or a closely related field at an accredited college or university.
MANRRS is a national society incorporated 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.
