Annually NCIS awards scholarships to two students majoring in an agricultural discipline
and enrolled at an 1890 Land-Grant University. The 1890 Land-Grant institutions are historically black universities that were established under the Second Morrill Act of 1890. The purpose
of this scholarship program is to enable deserving students to further their education and to
expose them to the business of crop insurance. Once awarded, the scholarships are in effect for
four semesters as long as the recipients meet the academic qualification requirements and continue as a full-time undergraduate student in good standing at the university.
The recipients this year are Elizabeth Andrews attending the University of Arkansas at Pine
Bluff majoring in agricultural business and Miciah Ahrnsbrak, attending Langston University
(Oklahoma) majoring in Animal Science/AgriBusiness.
