Cargill gives $1 million to Kansas State University. The money goes to K-State's office of diversity and dual career development to establish the Cargill Project Impact Diversity Partnership. It will be used in recruiting and retention of multicultural students in the colleges of agriculture, business administration and engineering.
Overall six initiatives in the partnership will receive funding over a three-year period. One of them includes five one-day college programs for students in grades seven through 12 designed to get the students excited about studying agriculture.
