(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) is pleased to announce a $500 scholarship available to students who enroll in the new Crop Science (Agronomy) Associate Degree. Nine Crop Science (Agronomy) scholarships will be awarded to students who begin the program at NTC during the spring 2016 semester.
 
“We are excited to provide additional financial assistance to those who will shape the future of the agriculture industry in Wisconsin,” said Dr. Jeannie Worden, NTC Vice President of Human Resources and College Advancement and NTC Foundation Executive Director. “This scholarship is a reflection of our commitment to the financial well-being of NTC students.”
 
The Crop Science (Agronomy) Associate Degree at NTC is a two-year, agronomy-based program that focuses on the principles and practices of crop production and field management. Students can expect practical hands-on learning opportunities that are infused with theory throughout the program.

During the program, students will actively manage 100 acres and complete an internship work experience.
