Cameron University Department of Agriculture announces scholarship awards

The Cameron University Department of Agriculture recently presented scholarship and tuition waiver awards to 17 agriculture majors for the 2012-2013 academic year. Scholarships and tuition waivers were awarded in various amounts. The students listed met the eligibility requirements for the respective award they received. In addition, some scholarships carry over to the next academic year if the recipients maintain the eligibility requirements of their respective scholarships.

“Thanks to the generosity of private donors as well as the university’s administration, the Cameron University Department of Agriculture is awarding almost $17,000 in departmental scholarships this year, an all-time high,” says Dr. Leon Fischer, Chair, Department of Agriculture. “Cameron agriculture students enter the workforce in numerous positions – including veterinary school and ultimately veterinary medicine, livestock production, research, crop production, and education. These students have the potential to impact consumers across the country, and we are grateful to the donors who make it possible for us to ensure they have access to a quality education.”
