The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) is now accepting applications for its National Dairy Leadership Scholarship Program. Each year, NMPF allocates monies toward scholarships for the purpose of supporting graduate students actively pursuing dairy-related fields of research that will directly benefit milk marketing cooperatives and the U.S. dairy industry at large. In past years, the average scholarship awarded has been $6,000 or more.
Graduate students from a variety of academic disciplines serving the dairy industry have received scholarships from NMPF in recent years. General research areas which have provided useful information to our milk marketing cooperatives include, but are not limited to agricultural communications, dairy research, food science, animal health, etc. Completed applications must be received by NMPF no later than April 6, 2018. The NMPF Board of Directors will select the winning applicants in June 2018. The winners will be notified soon thereafter. For more information and applications, please visit the NMPF website or contact Beth Briczinski at (703) 243-6111.
