Apply now to be a Cargill Global Scholar!
Cargill, together with the Institute of International Education (IIE), has launched a new scholarship program. In addition to an annual scholarship award of $2,500 for up to three years, the Cargill Global Scholars Program provides leadership development opportunities and one-on-one mentoring with Cargill executives.
The application deadline is Sunday, March 31, 2013.
These enrichment activities have been designed to help foster and enhance the Cargill Global Scholars' leadership potential and critical thinking skills, and equip them with the tools necessary for becoming global leaders and decisions makers.
The University of Minnesota is one of only 13 U.S.-based universities that have been chosen by Cargill as a partner school for this program. Initially, students from five countries will be selected as Cargill Global Scholars.
First or second year undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota majoring in the following areas are encouraged to apply:
- all engineering fields
- computer science
- food science
- agriculture-related fields.
The selected individuals will be chosen based on their demonstrated high level of academic performance and leadership potential.
