  21. Cunningham Appalachian Student Scholarship

    Dear Appalachian Students,

    The Community of Appalachian Student Leaders (CASL) is a student organization that aims to connect and engage students from the Appalachian region with fellow Appalachian students at The Ohio State University, while working towards developing our academic, professional, and leadership skills. It is our goal to build a student community through peer support and sharing our experiences from our rich region. Appalachian students at Ohio State often come from small, tight-knit, and rural communities. OSU is quite the opposite of this, and the transition to a campus this large can be difficult. In addition, our personal experiences do not always align with others. This can be very frustrating as a young adult and college student. Collectively, we can increase our sense of belonging, which will contribute to our academic success and carry on into the rest of our lives. Our goal is to help others, especially back home, do the same. Learn more about our group at https://u.osu.edu/appalachia/community-of-appalachian-student-leaders-casl/

    Cunningham Scholarship

    CASL will once again be helping award the Patricia Cunningham Scholarship. This fund is designated to provide scholarship opportunities to undergraduate students from Appalachian counties in honor of Dr. Patricia Cunningham, WGSS alumna, to further her pledge of increasing access to higher education for underrepresented students. This scholarship will be awarded based on academic merit and commitment to student leadership. Dr. Cunningham was a three-time graduate of Ohio State University and received her Bachelor of Arts in Women's Studies in 2002 going on to receive her doctorate in Education Policy and Leadership in 2011. She was the founder of the Appalachian Project Ohio which focused on pathways to education for Ohio State's Appalachian students. Dr. Patty dedicated her time, resources, and soul to serving underrepresented students both on and off-campus. She tirelessly worked to break down barriers for students to obtain a college education and pursue their endeavors beyond.

    *APPLICATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR 2021-2022*

    A scholarship of up to $1,500 will be awarded for the 2020-2021 academic year. Applications will be reviewed based on academic merit and commitment to student leadership.

    Undergraduate students from the Appalachian region in any Arts and Sciences major are encouraged to apply by March 31, 2021. Students must be enrolled full-time during the 2021-2022 academic year to be eligible.

    Loudonville Farmers Equity has an internship opportunity for Summer of 2021!

    Working outdoors with our agronomy team!

    Loudonville Farmers Equity is a farmer owned cooperative in southern Ashland County Ohio, serving our area farmers since 1915. We are now taking internship applications for the summer of 2021. The internship opportunities that we are offering are with our agronomy team. You will have the opportunity to help farmers maximize their crops potential with our Certified Crop Advisors. You will gain experience from observing their interactions with our customers and of course their crop management recommendations. During peak planting you will work daily with our operations manager getting seeds, fertilizers, and crop protection products delivered to our farmer customers and also help our crew of custom planters, side dressers, dry spreaders, and sprayers. We have found that some of our customers have come to rely on us to get most all of their crop work done for them so they can focus on their livestock operations. This past year we covered over 68,000 acres of custom fieldwork out of our single location in Loudonville. We all work with the drive and pride that we have for our own family farms as we serve our community.

    If you are interested in learning more about what you can expect from your internship at Loudonville Farmers Equity, please contact me by email, text, or phone call. I look forward each year to helping young ag professionals gain experience to be the best they can be!
