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.
