Agricultural students in post-secondary education are eligible to compete for up to $15,000 in total scholarship awards for next year through the Accelerating a Generation Syngenta Scholarship Program, according to a news release.
Syngenta invites eligible university students to apply for six regional awards of $2,500 each, now offered in partnership with the National FFA Organization. Scholarship recipients will be announced in spring 2021.
