AgStar University Scholarship Program

The AgStar University Scholarship Program provides education, support and insight to students interested in agricultural financing or agricultural-related careers.

We partner with several universities to offer this integrated scholarship program to students who reside in AgStar's local service area.

The AgStar University Scholarship Program includes:

  • AgStar Scholarships – A $2,500 scholarship awarded to each student in the program and disbursed during the fall semester of junior year.
  • Orientation Session – A one-day seminar held to provide an overview of agricultural financing in general, and AgStar in particular.
  • Guest Lectures – AgStar executives will present lectures focusing on specific areas within agricultural financing.
  • Internships – Scholars have the first opportunity for a paid internship with AgStar. Assignment could cover credit, sales or special projects during the course of a 10 to 12-week period.

Funding for the AgStar University Scholarship Program is provided by the AgStar Fund for Rural America.
