Dairy MAX is committed to strengthening agriculture and sustaining a viable future for dairy farming. One way that Dairy MAX follows through with this commitment is the Dairy MAX scholarship program, which supports local dairy farm families while investing in future generations. Dairy MAX will continue that program this spring and award three $2,500 academic scholarships. Scholarship applications are now open until March 31, 2023.
"Dairy MAX's commitment to giving over $82,500 in scholarships for the last 16 years to dairy farm families sets this scholarship apart," said Todd Green, Dairy MAX's vice president of industry image and relations. This scholarship is a way to help students committed to the future of agriculture and strengthens relationships with future industry leaders."
To be eligible for the Dairy MAX scholarship, students must reside in the Dairy MAX region, be a graduating high school senior or an undergraduate student currently enrolled in college, and be a child of a dairy farmer, child of a dairy farm employee, or an FFA/4-H dairy show participant.
"The future of our industry is bright, and we are pleased to support these students with big plans for the dairy industry to ensure growth and success," said Green.
Investing in the recipients' education propels dairy to feed the world while nourishing communities. The 2023 scholarship applications are now open and will close on March 31, 2023. For a full list of eligibility requirements and information about applying, visit DairyMAX.org/dairy/scholarships.
