Farmers Union Industries Foundation – Stanley Moore Scholarship Application
Stanley Moore was born into two prominent Farmers Union families, the Moores and the Talbotts. As a young boy, he traveled with his grandfather, C.C. Talbott, a principal organizer and the first president of the North Dakota Farmers Union.
Moore was a man who provided great vision and leadership in both public policy and financial matters. He brought success to all facets of the organization because of his business savvy, people skills and his philosophy of service. He was known to say, “It doesn’t matter much who gets the credit as long as the job gets done.”
The scholarship is open to Farmers Union members and their children in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. High school seniors, college students or non-traditional students seeking funding to attend a two – or four-year accredited college, university or technical school for any area of study. Several $1,500 scholarships will be awarded with money to be used for tuition and books.
Stanley Moore was a strong advocate of education and his scholarship provides a lasting memorial in honor of his achievements and dedication to Farmers Union.
