CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Murray Wise Associates Foundation in 2014 will once again award several scholarships to deserving agriculture students. Deadline for applications is March 31, 2014.
All initial applications will be taken online through a secure process that includes both a questionnaire and an ability to upload transcripts, letters of reference and other documents in support of an application.
"Every year, we have students graduate and go on to careers in agriculture, and that provides us the opportunity to identify other deserving students who are pursuing agriculture and related degrees," said Murray Wise, chairman and CEO of Murray Wise Associates. "These scholarships are based strictly on merit and are not tied to any specific university or region."
Eligible applicants include college students already enrolled as well as high school seniors accepted for enrollment at an accredited college, university or community college in a course of study related to agriculture. Awards are for a minimum of $1,000 and may be renewed yearly for up to four years, provided certain conditions are met.
Recipients are selected based on academic credentials, including class rank, grade point average and test scores. "Because we are seeking to identify and help future leaders, we also look for those who have demonstrated leadership qualities, especially in agriculture and community-based extracurricular activities," said Wise.
Individuals may begin the application process at app.murraywiseassociates.com.
Murray Wise Associates LLC, with offices in Florida, Illinois and Iowa, is a leading national agricultural real estate marketing and financial advisory firm.
