Soybean Scholarships Available

The American Soybean Association wants to give a college scholarship to a student interested in agriculture.

The Soy Scholarship is a $7,000, one-time award presented to a high school senior. This senior must plan to pursue agriculture at any accredited college or university in the 2024-25 academic year. ASA manages the scholarship. BASF Corporation provides a grant for the scholarship.

“ASA is grateful for its longstanding partnership with BASF and proud to invest in the future farmers, scientists, teachers, and other careers in agriculture that drive the industry forward,” says ASA President Daryl Cates. “Agriculture has a significant role to play in sustainably feeding a growing world population, shaping climate policies, and many other ways we support and provide for people here at home and around the globe. Supporting education is imperative to industry advancement.”

The scholarship goes out in $3,500 increments (one per semester) for the 2023-24-school year. The student must be a child or grandchild of a current state soybean association/ASA member. He/she must maintain successful academic progress and remain in good standing with the college or university to get the full amount. High school seniors may apply online through Dec. 31.


A committee of soybean grower-leaders will select the ASA BASF Scholarship recipient. ASA will announce the award winner this winter. See more details:
