Jerry Minore was a longtime friend of the wheat industry and advocate for wheat farmers. To honor his work and life, his company, BASF, has partnered with the National Wheat Foundation to establish a scholarship for students with connections to the wheat industry who are planning careers in agriculture.
The Minore Memorial Scholarship will fund four college scholarships for the 2019-2020
academic year: two $1,500 scholarships and two $1,000 scholarships.
To be eligible for the Minore Memorial Scholarship, students must:
• Be a current freshmen, sophomore, or junior pursuing an agricultural-related degree;
• Be enrolled in an accredited college, university, junior or community college;
• Be a member of the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG)*; have a close
relative (parent, grandparent) who is a member of NAWG; OR be nominated by
someone sitting on the NAWG Board of Directors or a state wheat association board.
