NMPF Now Accepting Applications for Scholarship Program

February 5, 2014

In an effort to support future leaders of the dairy industry, NMPF is accepting applications for its 2014 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.

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:

  • 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
  • Marketing and Price Analysis

Completed applications must be received by NMPF no later than April 4, 2014. Applications are available on the NMPF website.
