Annie’s Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship Program gives out $100,000 a year to students pursuing degrees in sustainable agriculture. The company, which you can read more about here, is dedicated to producing responsible, simple, and nourishing packaged food. You can read about past winners by clicking the above image.
The program is open to full-time undergraduate and graduate students studying at an accredited 2 or 4 year college or graduate school in the U.S. for the 2015/2016 school year. Students must be focusing studies on sustainable agriculture. International students may apply as long as they are studying at a U.S. school. Annie’s accepts applications postmarked between November 3, 2014 and January 5, 2015. If you are chosen to receive an award, you will be notified by May 25th, 2015, and funds will be dispersed directly to your school on or around July 2, 2015.
The application consists of two parts – your application and your supporting documents. Complete the application cover page, sign the form and draft a personal statement. Your supporting documents consist of an official copy of your transcript and two letters of recommendation from someone who can speak to your commitment to Sustainable Agriculture. The letters of recommendation must be from contacts that are NOT related to you. Letters of recommendation should be in a sealed envelope and the writer should sign the seal.
