The Minnesota Legislature passed the Workforce Development Initiative in 2017, making scholarships available in high demand career areas. AgCentric Director Keith Olander says agriculture is one of the areas targeted. “We usually have two job openings at least per graduate, we have a talent supply problem and we are highlighting the opportunities in agriculture.” These $2,500 scholarships are available for students pursuing a one year or two year associate degree, diploma or certificate program at one of 30 Minnesota state colleges and universities. “You don’t have a certain GPA or background; I’d encourage any student out there to check it out.” More details are available online.
