N.C. State students garner soybean research scholarships

The scholarships are based on merit and need, with a strong preference for students from North Carolina families who farm soybeans.

Six students studying soybean production at North Carolina State University have received soybean research scholarships sponsored by the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association.

The scholarships are based on merit and need, with a strong preference for students from North Carolina families who farm soybeans. The association established the scholarships to support students who are seeking careers in the soybean industry and awards the scholarships annually.

“We are pleased to provide scholarships through the soybean checkoff to this strong group of students who have shown an interest in the soybean industry,” said Jeff Peed, a soybean farmer from Aurora, N.C. and president of the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association. “We are certain they will make a positive impact on agriculture and soybean farming, and are glad to help support their education.”
