MSU/KCC Dual Degree Agricultural Operations Scholarship

The Agricultural Operations Program is a new partnership between Kellogg Community College (KCC) and the Michigan State University (MSU) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources’ Institute of Agricultural Technology (IAT). The program is designed to prepare graduates for careers or further education in agricultural technology fields.

Agricultural operations students will have the opportunity to earn an associate degree in agricultural science from KCC while simultaneously earning a certificate from the MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology. All coursework will be completed entirely at KCC.

Your Support Will Make a Big Difference

A scholarship to the MSU/KCC Agricultural Operations Program provides students with a solid background in plant and soil science, precision agriculture, water management, entomology, plant pathology and business management, preparing them for any number of careers or further education upon graduation.

The MSU/KCC Agricultural Operations Program combines classroom instruction and theory with practical experience gained through laboratories and a professional internship. Scholarships are crucial to help offset these expenses and make the program more affordable.

Project Budget

Money raised will provide scholarships to students enrolled in the Agricultural Operations dual degree program at Kellogg Community College.

With the current estimated cost of the two-year program at $17,424 per student, your support can help ease the financial stress and allow students to focus on their studies and future success.

Scholarships will be awarded to students by the IAT at MSU in increments of $500 and $1000, but your gift can make a significant impact.

Thank you for investing in the future of agriculture and the leaders of tomorrow!
