Established in 2010, the Responsible Nutrient Management Foundation is a coalition of like-minded agricultural companies who are interested in positively influencing both the practices and perceptions of sustainable agriculture.
"The Responsible Nutrient Management Foundation is pleased to offer scholarships in the amount of $2500; available to students attending an agriculture-related program at a post-secondary educational institution in the United States.
This scholarship opportunity is the result of a cooperative commitment between AgroLiquid, Ag PhD, No-Till Farmer Magazine, Capello USA, Hagie Manufacturing, TapLogic, Midwest Laboratories, AgXcel, PNC Bank, and RFD-TV; and intended to further the education of students who demonstrate the ability to clearly articulate the importance of responsible nutrient management not only for the future of agricultural industry, but also for our culture as a whole.
Equipping the leaders of tomorrow with an understanding of the delicate balance between high-production agriculture and environmental stewardship will be critical as agriculture strives to more efficiently and sustainably produce food and fiber to feed and clothe the world. The Responsible Nutrient Management Foundation is committed to the future of agriculture and the youth who represent its leadership, and believe this scholarship will help bring bright students closer to their goal of a career in agriculture."
