Together we will reach our $100,000 goal.


Through its history the Lansing Area Agriculture & Natural Resources Club has supported a variety of scholarship efforts. In 2013 the Club took a major step by establishing and funding a $30,000 "Endowed Scholarship" at MSU directed toward assisting outstanding students enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). Club members and friends have continued to donate to the endowment so that today it has grown to over $75,000. Our goal is to reach a minimum endowment of $100,000 to increase the size and number of scholarships given annually.
