The annual scholarships are offered through MFU as part of the organization’s commitment to education and include the Bud Daniels Memorial Scholarship, the John Korsbeck Memorial Scholarship, and the Cascade County-wide Farmers Union Local, Chouteau County Farmers Union Local and Flathead County-wide Farmers Union Local scholarships.
“Investing in education to enhance life for the individual and for the benefit of civil society is foundational to the Farmers Union mission and reflects our commitment to cooperative principles,” said Eric Bergman, who serves as president of the Cascade County-wide Local.
