Scholarship & Enrichment

About the Scholarship

The Cargill Global Scholars Program is a distinctive, two-year leadership development program that provides financial support to high performing students in Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia or the United States.

Cargill Global Scholars are students who demonstrate exemplary academic achievements, leadership potential and study in food, agriculture and risk management.

In addition to financial support, students receive leadership development training and one-on-one mentoring to equip them with the necessary tools to become future global leaders, decision makers, and influencers.

The purpose of the Cargill Global Scholars Program is to build a global network of future leaders who will one day make important contributions to advance business, agriculture and food security.
