Agrium US Inc. of Rogers is the first business to pledge sponsorship of a V-500 Scholarship for a single student. V-500 has recently kicked off their new scholarship sponsorship program.
This program connects the donors to recipients in a personal fashion. This fall, a student receiving a $1500 V-500 scholarship will learn that Agrium US Inc. is the reason the scholarship is available to them.
Agrium will be given the name, hometown and major of the student receiving the scholarship. A representative from Agrium and the student will have the opportunity to meet at the V-500 Recognition Banquet, to be held on Dec. 8.
Alison Kasowski, assistant director of annual giving at Valley City State University said, “We hope that connecting the donor to the recipient will be a rewarding experience for both parties. It will be wonderful for the recipient to have the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to the generous contributor, and it will be exciting for the donor to see the impact their dollars are making on a VCSU student.”
Those interested in the V-500 Scholarship Program should call the VCSU office of advancement at 845-7203.
