Mid-West Fertilizer is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021 Mid-West Fertilizer Scholarship Program. Nine high school students and one college student have been selected to receive a $500 scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Mid-West Fertilizer has seen many exciting changes this past year, including implementing the company's first-ever scholarship program. Amongst these changes, it was important for the company to start a program that recognizes the leadership and academic excellence of students continuing their education that helps keep our rural communities strong and vital. This new scholarship program launched is just one way Mid-West Fertilizer can support today's student leaders on their path to becoming tomorrow's business and community leaders.
