The American Agri-Women Foundation has opened the sign-up period for its Daughters of American Agriculture Scholarship program. The fund was created to honor the memory of courageous and adventuresome pioneer women who played such an important role in the founding of this nation and encourage the present generation to continue their education in agricultural pursuits.

These two scholarships are available to any farm, ranch, or agribusiness woman or her daughter to pursue accredited courses in agriculture leadership, communications, rural sociology, medicine, or any other courses directly related to agriculture.

The Jean Ibendahl Scholarship is available to high school graduates and women aged 18-23.

The Sister Thomas More Bertels Scholarship is named after a former Manitowoc, Wisconsin, school teacher. It's offered to women who are returning students in agriculture and are 24 years or older.

Both scholarships are for $1,000. Applications must be postmarked by June 1. For more information, go to:
