2019 Aggies for Fresh Scholarship
What: 2-day, immersive experience to introduce Texas Aggies to the fresh produce industry.
Where: Viva Fresh Expo – San Antonio, Tx
When: April 25th-27th
Each year, Aggies for Fresh selects 8-10 Texas A&M students for an all-expenses paid opportunity to attend the Viva Fresh Expo; a 2 day fresh produce tradeshow in San Antonio, Texas. This show serves as an immersion into the produce industry; allowing students the opportunity to not only learn about opportunities in the industry, but it also serves as a chance to do all of this alongside of industry leaders, business owners, and fellow Aggies who want to see you succeed, make connections, and find internships or jobs that will propel you forward in your career!
As a part of this industry myself, there is nothing more exciting than seeing new faces and fresh ideas coming from college students who are looking to jump in and learn about the fresh produce industry. If you have any interest in the fresh produce industry or are wanting to learn more about what it stands for, we urge you to give this opportunity a shot!
Applications are due by February 28th. For application qualifications, and detailed information, and the application itself, visit our scholarship page.
