Agriculture scholarships available


DECATUR — Women Changing the Face of Agriculture, a project of the Illinois Agri-Women, is once again offering four scholarships for females studying agriculture.
The $1,500 IAW Helen Henert Agriculture Education Scholarship is for an agriculture education major who is finishing the degree in the next year.  

Three $1,000 WCFA Agent of Change Scholarships are offered to students who have attended at least one Women Changing the Face of Agriculture Conference, either at a past WCFA event or anyone completing and attaching a 2021 WCFA worksheet.  One scholarship is for a high school senior, one for a current college student, and one for a current graduate student.
“Being a part of WCFA as a student and volunteer has allowed me to make connections I value tremendously. Along with receiving a scholarship, I am grateful to be a part of this industry surrounded by successful women who continue to support each other in all endeavors,” said Callie McClay, a 2020 scholarship recipient.
Previous scholarship winner Kylie Miller said, “Illinois Agri-Women events and scholarships set women up for success not only financially, but by creating a community of women who empower one another within the agriculture industry.”
The deadline for submission of the online application is March 31.  Find scholarship information and applications at or
