SUPPORTING EDUCATION

The American Crystal Sugar Company Scholarship Program

Investing in the Future of Education

American Crystal Sugar Company helps prepare the next generation of researchers, scientists, farmers, agronomists, and employees through scholarships and partnerships with high schools, tech schools, and institutions of higher education.

 

Scholarships for High School Graduates
Our scholarship program began in 2008 as one of several community-focused initiatives. Since that time, the company has awarded over $200,000 in scholarships to deserving students. Altogether, American Crystal awards 108 scholarships to graduating seniors in the Red River Valley each year.
