Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., is now accepting applications for its annual scholarship program that provides financial assistance to members of the National Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow. ACT is a national college student association with more than 350 members located on 17 college and university campuses across the country. ACT's mission of fostering professional development is at the core of the Yamaha-ACT Scholarship Program, now in its third year.
For the 2009-2010 program, the University of Florida received Yamaha's chapter award for the second year in a row, while Kelsey Fletcher of Texas Tech University and Hailey Harroun of Oklahoma State University earned the individual scholarships. The University of Florida's award helped cover costs in bringing six students to the 2010 AMS in Minnesota this year, while the individual scholarships covered all travel and accommodations costs, plus more, for both Fletcher and Harroun. The 2011 AMS will be in New Orleans-- a city sure to attract students from around the country next summer.
