The Michigan Corn Growers Association (MCGA) board of directors created this scholarship in memory of former board member, Frank Lipinski. Frank was passionate about helping people with a non-agriculture background enter into the industry and he educated many young people on the career opportunities available in agriculture. One scholarship of up to $2,000 will be awarded for the Spring 2019 semester. All applications must be received by the Michigan Corn office no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2018.
• Applicants must be enrolled as a full-time student at a post-secondary educational institution pursuing an agricultural degree during the spring 2019 semester.
• Applicants must come from a non-agriculture/farm background. (Being a member of FFA, 4-H or any other related organization does not disqualify you from applying).
• Applicants cannot come from a family farm.
