The Routhe-Christiansen Scholarship was established to support the studies of an upper-division undergraduate student with an interest in agricultural finance, majoring in either Agricultural and Food Business Management or Applied Economics.
Harlund G. (Hal) Routhe, Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota, graduated from the College of Agriculture in 1951 with a B.S. in Agricultural Economics and in 1954 with a Master's Degree. He has devoted his career to the University of Minnesota, as an Applied and Agricultural Extension Economist, a 4-H leader, a Program Director in Agriculture and Related Industries, and Associate Director of the Minnesota Extension Service. In light of his continuing interest in agriculture and education, Mr. Routhe created this scholarship.
Students who apply for CFANS scholarships in March of each year are automatically considered for this scholarship.
