United Farmers Cooperative (UFC) has established this scholarship program to recognize and reward the academic achievement, co-curricular participation, and community involvement of the children of its patrons and employees. Agriculture and the world are rapidly becoming more complex and sophisticated. With this in mind, an educational base and technical training become important tools to cope and flourish in such an environment. We at UFC encourage each student to remember their heritage as they pursue their studies. It is our hope that these awards assist in developing careers that enhance the future of rural Minnesota.
