In 75 years, the CHS Foundation has contributed nearly $84 million to develop the next generation of ag leaders for life. Throughout the years, it’s the people — the growers, teachers, dreamers, doers, partners, mentors and more — who have transformed these contributions into life-changing impact for young leaders in agriculture. We’re proud to lift up the people who put these contributions to work — the people who respect the work of past generations, celebrate the successes of this generation and build a brighter tomorrow for the next generation.
The CHS Foundation cultivates opportunity through university partnerships that benefit students studying in the field of agriculture with program support, mini-grants and scholarships. More than 225 scholarships are awarded annually to college students enrolled in an agricultural-related program at partnering two- and four-year colleges and universities. Mini-grants are awarded to agriculture-focused college clubs for innovative academic and leadership development. All scholarships and mini-grants are offered exclusively through our 24 partner colleges and universities listed below. Interested students or college clubs should contact their college of ag office to apply, since application and award timelines vary.
