This scholarship was established in 2014 by Marion Angstadt. Marion and her husband Ernest were lifelong farmers in the Kutztown area, growing crops and raising chickens on their 100-acre farm. Following Ernest’s death, Marion established this fund for students furthering their education in Agricultural Science because of her and Ernest’s interest in the value of land and of its natural beauty.

This fund will provide scholarships to seniors graduating from Kutztown Area Senior High School who will be pursuing a two- or four-year degree in the area of Agricultural Science. Applicants must have achieved a cumulative GPA of 73% (2.0) or above in order to apply. Applicants must have a financial need.

To be considered for this scholarship, apply between January 15th and March 15th. All applicants will be notified in May.
