In August, twenty-two students received scholarships from PennAg Industries Association. The PennAg Scholarship Fund, supported by members and friends of the association, is funded primarily through the annual Divots for Degrees Golf Outing. The 2016 outing was held at Four Seasons Golf Club, Landisville and raised more than $15,500 for the fund.
Since its inception in 1991, the PennAg Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $300,000 in scholarships to children of our industry's employees. To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants must be enrolled in a post-secondary educational institution and work for a PennAg member or be a child of a PennAg member. Read more.
