NMPF Accepting Applications for National Dairy Leadership Scholarship Program

February 6, 2013

NMPF is accepting applications for its National Dairy Leadership Scholarship Program for academic year 2013-2014.

NMPF's Board of Directors offers scholarships each year to qualified graduate students (enrolled in Master's or Ph.D. programs) who are actively pursuing dairy-related fields of research that are of immediate interest to NMPF member cooperatives. Graduate students pursuing relevant research are encouraged to submit an application (applicants do not need to be members of NMPF to qualify). The top scholarship applicant will be awarded the Hintz Memorial Scholarship, which was created in 2005 in honor of the late Cass-Clay Creamery Board Chairman Murray Hintz, who was instrumental in establishing NMPF's scholarship program.

Recommended fields of study include but are not limited to Agriculture Communications, Animal Health, Animal and/or Human Nutrition, Bovine Genetics, Dairy Products Processing, Dairy Science, Economics, Environmental Science, Food Science, Food Safety, Herd Management, and Marketing and Price Analysis.

Applications are due no later than Friday, May 3, 2013. For an application or more information, please visit the NMPF website. For questions, please contact Betsy Flores.
