Mountaire Farms is excited to announce a brand-new scholarship program aimed at helping students interested in careers that help feed the world. As the last few years have shown, the food industry is an important part of our essential businesses that help keep us healthy, safe and fed. This scholarship will help students interested in agriculture, culinary arts and food service to pursue a college degree and achieve their dreams of finding a career that matters.

WBOC and Mountaire Farms will select one Delmarva high school senior every month September through June. Each winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship and will be featured on WBOC-TV and FOX21.
