WORTHINGTON - The Ohio Soybean Council Foundation has announced the scholarship recipients of the OSCF Scholarship Program for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Undergraduate scholarships of $3,000 each will be awarded to both Mike Hannewald and Emily Limes. Several other scholarships were also awarded.
This is the sixth year for the OSCF Scholarship Program, which was created to encourage undergraduate students to pursue careers in agriculture, as well as to support ongoing graduate-level research. All OSCF scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to full-time students enrolled at an Ohio college or university.
"We received a record number of applications this year and every year the competition gets tougher," said Tom Fontana, OSCF director of programs and development. "We believe the scholarships are an important part of strengthening the future of Ohio's soybean industry and we are happy with the winners who represent a wide variety of academic disciplines."
Hannewald of Waterville, is majoring in sustainable plant systems with a concentration in the area of agronomy at Ohio State University and will be a senior in the fall of 2013. Hannewald is active in the OSU College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, where he serves as a campus ambassador.
He completed an internship with Beck's Hybrids in the summer of 2012 and has been very active in the Ohio FFA where he served on the National FFA Officer Nominating Committee. Hannewald plans to pursue a career in agriculture, an industry that has become his passion.
Limes of Bowling Green, is majoring in agribusiness and applied economics with a concentration in the area of production agriculture at OSU and will be a senior in the fall of 2013. She was recently selected as president of the Buckeye Livestock Judging Club and is an active member of Saddle and Sirloin Club and Collegiate Young Farmers. She will be completing an internship in the summer of 2013 with Dow AgroSciences and plans to pursue a career in agriculture which has been rooted in her family traditions for four generations.
"It is a privilege to be a part of the scholarship selection committee," said David Black, Ohio Soybean Council board member and soybean farmer from Franklin County. "I have no doubt that the scholarship recipients will continue to contribute to the success of the Ohio soybean industry."
