Annual Mountaire Scholarship

Every year, we award dozens of $2,500 scholarships to children and grandchildren of our employees, growers, and grain producers. At Mountaire, we value education and encourage our teams to pursue and hone their academic talents. Paying for college can be challenging, so we want to assist our people and their families in that endeavor.

Criteria

*Employee, Grower or Breeder scholarship: one parent/grandparent grows chickens for Mountaire or is employed by Mountaire Farms
*Grain scholarship: one parent/grandparent sells Mountaire a minimum of 10,000 bushels of grain per year
Be enrolled as full-time student (minimum of 12 credits per semester) in the most current school year
Be involved in extracurricular activities in school and the community
