The World Ag Expo and E.M. Tharp, Inc. have teamed up for the seventh year to provide the “We Believe in Growing” scholarship. It was created to support agricultural education. High school seniors from Madera, Fresno, Tulare, Kings and Kern counties are encouraged to apply by January 18 to be considered. Two $10,000 scholarships will be awarded to students who attend a four-year university and major in an agricultural field. The scholarships will be disbursed over four years at $2,500 per year.

To be considered for the scholarship, students must submit two letters of recommendation; one copy of their high school transcripts; ACT or SAT scores and be graduating from high school during the 2012-2013 school year.
