United Cooperative, a farmer-owned cooperative based in Beaver Dam, WI, with locations throughout Wisconsin, awarded 50 $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors and college students continuing their education in both agricultural or nonagricultural majors.
“Each year we receive many applications from talented people for scholarships,” says David Cramer, United Cooperative president and CEO. “We started the scholarship program in 2008 to support students and their development for future careers in the communities where we do business."
Since the program’s inception, United Cooperative has awarded $318,000 in scholarships to Wisconsin students furthering their education. “We believe in supporting these young adults and are optimistic that some of these students will seek careers in Wisconsin agriculture and the businesses that support agriculture,” Cramer adds.
