Time Running out for Dairy Grad Students Applying for Scholarship Program

April 1, 2011

Graduate students currently pursuing dairy-related fields of research in Master’s or Ph.D. programs only have until Easter to submit their applications for NMPF’s National Dairy Leadership Scholarship Program. Applications will no longer be accepted after April 21.

Each year, NMPF awards at least four scholarships to outstanding graduate students who are conducting research that would benefit NMPF member cooperatives and the U.S. dairy industry at large.

Interested students 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.

Recommended fields of study include but are not limited to: Agriculture Communications and Journalism, 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 must be received no later than Thursday, April 21, 2011. For an application or more information, please visit the NMPF website or call the NMPF office at 703-243-6111.
