We look forward to receiving more applications for this year’s competition from eligible Cornell University students who:

  • Citizens or permanent residents of the United States
  • Students who demonstrate leadership potential and high academic performance

Ten scholars will be chosen in the United States for this year's cohort of the Cargill Global Scholars Program.
The scholars will receive:

  • Scholarship winners will receive a $2,500.00 scholarship per year for two years
  • Be paired with a mentor from Cargill for each of the two years
  • Participate in two fully funded leadership seminars where they will get to learn from leaders at Cargill and meet their fellow Cargill Scholars from Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, and the U.S.

We are currently accepting applications. To access the application or learn more about the Cargill Global Scholars Program, please visit our website.
