These scholarships provide financial support for current high school seniors and also students

Aurora Cooperative.

“The Aurora Cooperative is committed to the agriculture industry and is honored to help
students who are as passionate about it as we are,” said Kevin Sagehorn, Director of Marketing,
Aurora Cooperative. “We believe in the future of agriculture with our young people and this is
just one more way we can give back to our farmer-owners. By re-investing in the next
generation.”

The Aurora Cooperative has awarded 85 scholarships totaling almost $68,000 since the program
began in 2008.
