Women in AgricultureMahindra USA has announced the winners of its 2012-2013 scholarship program benefiting young women studying agriculture, the “Mahindra Tractors’ Women in Ag Scholarships.”

According to Mahindra, the Women in Ag Scholarships were created for the purpose of helping young women sustain the family farm values and rural lifestyle through a career in Agriculture.

These four women were selected to receive merit-based college scholarships from Mahindra USA for use during the 2013-2014 school year:

• Shelby Chaney from Brimson, MO will be a sophomore at Northwest Missouri State University majoring in Animal Science.
• Shelby Eckhardt from Seguin, TX will be a freshman at Texas A&M University – College Station majoring in Pre-Vet / Vet Sciences.
• Victoria Riback from Molalla, OR will be a freshman at Texas A&M University – College Station majoring in Agronomy & Crop Science.
• Stephanie Tarlowe from Hackettstown, NJ is a freshman at Cornell University majoring in Animal Science.

In partnership with The National FFA Organization, Mahindra says the scholarship winners were chosen based on their passion and involvement in agricultural studies as well as their academic performance and leadership. Every year, Mahindra USA teams up with the National FFA Organization to sponsor select young women involved in agriculture and their pursuit of a college education.

“It’s been an incredible privilege, personally and on behalf of Mahindra USA, to participate in another successful scholarship program. These young women are a shining example of the Mahindra Rise philosophy: Accepting No Limits, Alternative Thinking and Driving Positive Change for themselves and their communities,” says Cleo Franklin, Mahindra USA’s vice president of marketing and strategic planning. “Mahindra USA is proud to partner with the FFA, and we join them in congratulating these four very accomplished students. We are thrilled to play a part in assisting them and their families in furthering their agricultural education.”
