Yamaha is now accepting applications for the 2011-2012 scholarship program that provides financial assistance to members of the National Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT).
The Yamaha-ACT Scholarship Program is broken out into two individual student scholarships and one chapter scholarship. All three awards are aimed at helping students attend the annual Agricultural Media Summit (AMS), which is the largest gathering of ag media professionals in the country and is the ACT students’ primary career development networking opportunity each year.
ACT is a national college student association with more than 350
members located on 17 college and university campuses across the
country. ACT’s mission of fostering professional development is at the
core of the Yamaha-ACT Scholarship Program, now in its fourth year.
“Yamaha is proud to help these ag students, but the program is structured so that the ag community might benefit most in the long term,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS marketing manager.
For the 2010-11 program, the University of Florida received Yamaha’s chapter award for the third year in a row, while Janell Baum of University of Illinois and R. Bruce Sargent of University of Guelph earned the individual scholarships.
