The National Dairy Promotion and Research Board is Accepting Scholarship Applications

Applications are being accepted for college scholarships that are awarded by America’s dairy farmers and dairy importers through the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board. The board funds, in part, Dairy Management Inc., which manages the national dairy checkoff program.

Eleven scholarships worth $2,500 each will be awarded. Additionally, the board awards a $3,500 James H. Loper Jr. Memorial Scholarship to the outstanding scholarship recipient.

Students in their sophomore through senior year majoring in one of the following fields are eligible: communications/public relations, journalism, marketing, business, economics, nutrition, food science and agriculture education.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, an interest in a career in a dairy-related discipline and demonstrated leadership, initiative and integrity.

Candidates must complete an application form, submit an official transcript of all college courses and write a short statement describing their career aspirations, dairy-related activities and work experiences.
