Scholarships to Support Agriculture’s Future
A Comprehensive list by Hoard's Dairyman


Are you college bound next fall? Planning to attend graduate school to continue your education? Applying for scholarships to assist in funding your efforts can be well worth the time put into filling out the applications.

1. Where to find dairy scholarships?
The Hoard’s Dairyman list of scholarships is where I looked when I was a senior in high school. Also, check out your school or college’s department for scholarships the school gives out or knows of. The National Dairy Shrine awards scholarships for different career interests and for students entering college, in their undergraduate education, or in graduate school as well.

2. Pay attention to eligibility.
Most scholarships have specific guidelines on who can apply for them. This may include year in school, major, career interests, or an affiliation with a club or organization. Contact the scholarship coordinator if you are unsure if you are eligible.

3. Apply multiple times.
If you are not awarded a scholarship after applying, it won’t hurt to submit your application again next year! A few scholarships are renewable, so you might have to resubmit your transcripts or letter of recommendations to get the scholarship again.
By: Elise Regusci

Scholarships are a great way to pay for college. In the table below is a listing of scholarships available to youth majoring agriculture or with a dairy background.

Holstein Foundation Launched Career Resources

BRATTLEBORO, Vt., July 24, 2019 – The Holstein Foundation launched career resources designed to provide basic knowledge in a wide range of careers relating to the dairy industry. They are ideal for use by all ages, from junior dairy project members or leaders seeking reference materials.

The mission of the career resources is to help youth find a dairy-related career path that suits them best.

“We set out to help youth understand the wide variety of career opportunities in the dairy industry,” says Holstein Foundation Programs Manager Jodi Hoynoski. “We plan to expand these resources in the future to help them get the job they want too.”

Currently, 10 careers are outlined to fit a wide variety of interests. The Holstein Foundation will continue to expand the careers profiles offered and provide more resources on things like resumes and interviews.

All career descriptions can be downloaded free of charge from the website in a PDF format. With questions, contact Kelli Dunklee at 800.952.5200, ext. 4124, or kdunklee@holstein.com. Visit http://www.holsteinfoundation.org/education/career_resources.html to download online for free.
