Special to the Leader & Times
American Implement and Western State Bank are pleased to announce the return of their annual scholarship program for western Kansas area students.
The program, titled Ag Future Scholarships, will provide a total of ten $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors or current college students who will be enrolled in a college or technical school for the fall 2023 semester and who intend to pursue an ag-related program or degree.
“The agricultural industry, especially in Western Kansas and Southeast Colorado, is vital to our communities,” American Implement Marketing Director Kelley Baker said. “We believe in neighbors helping neighbors, which is why we’ve once again teamed up with Western State Bank to create this opportunity for area families.”
To qualify for the scholarship, students must have a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average, reside or have a permanent address in a qualifying Western Kansas or Eastern Colorado county, and intend to pursue an Ag-related program. Additional factors such as grades, letters of recommendation, community involvement and participation in extracurricular activities will also be considered.
The deadline to apply is March 31, and recipients will be contacted and announced by April 21.
