CHS Foundation assists college students with professional development

With summer drawing to a close, college students are trading their summer internships in for college campuses and heading back to school. As students transition into lectures, labs, club meetings and other extracurricular activities, the CHS Foundation hopes to make it a bit easier for them to gain access to professional development.
 
Applications are now being accepted for CHS Foundation College Club Mini-Grants. Mini-grants up to $1,000 are awarded to ag focused college clubs hosting innovative academic and leadership programs that strengthen student learning and enhance professional development for ag students.
 
Previous examples of projects funded range from travel to national conferences, ag literacy weeks on campus and judging competitions.
 
“We are grateful to the CHS Foundation for supporting our travel to the national Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences Region VI Cluster,” says Khiem Lam, OSU MANRRS president and a previous grant recipient. “It was a great opportunity to meet members from other universities who are passionate and knowledgeable about agriculture.”
 
Mini-grant applications are now being accepted through Oct. 15, 2017. Decisions will be made and communicated in late November. If you know college students who might be interested, encourage them to visit chsinc.com/stewardship for more information.
