Dairy farmers not only produce a nutritious food source for the world but play a vital role in helping their local communities thrive. The Dairy MAX scholarship program is a way of supporting dairy farm families while investing in the future of dairy.
Dairy MAX will continue the program this spring and award three $2,500 academic scholarships. Scholarship applications are now open until March 31, 2024.
“In the past 17 years, Dairy MAX has awarded more than $90,000 in scholarships to students committed to the future of agriculture and strengthening the future of the dairy industry,” said Todd Green, Dairy MAX vice president of industry image and relations. “The Dairy MAX scholarship program allows the organization to support the next generation of the dairy industry and play a role in these young people advancing their education.”
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 the dairy industry is bright, and we are proud to support students who will be assets to the industry’s future,” said Green.
Applicants for the three scholarships must be a high school senior or undergraduate student currently enrolled in a junior college or four-year program. They must also be the child of a dairy farmer, child of a dairy farm employee, FFA, or 4-H dairy show participant during their junior or senior year of high school.
Students must reside in the geographic territory served by Dairy MAX, including Colorado, southwest Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, New Mexico, western Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming.
