AgChoice Scholars Applications being accepted!

Posted: August 19, 2012

AgChoice Farm Credit created the AgChoice Scholars program, a unique experiential learning opportunity for a small group of Penn State students.

It is a two-year program where Penn State students have a firsthand glimpse at the inner-workings of Pennsylvania’s largest agricultural lender and the agricultural lending industry.

AgChoice recognizes that the agricultural industry and its needs are constantly changing and has established this program to help increase our candidate pool for future employees. The AgChoice Scholars program is also designed to build leaders for tomorrow’s agricultural industry and offer students the opportunity to network with their peers, AgChoice staff and other industry representatives. This privileged group of students will receive:

• Hands-on experience in the agricultural finance industry
• Business and financial management training
• Leadership, teamwork and communications skills
• Scholarship money and other compensation

What does the AgChoice Scholars program involve?

AgChoice Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in many exclusive experiences. In addition to meeting coursework requirements, scholars in the program will be involved in a series of seminars, group projects and other specialized learning opportunities.
