Each year, the National Milk Producers Federation(NMPF) awards four to five scholarships to outstanding graduate students (enrolled in masters or Ph.D. programs) who are actively pursuing dairy-related fields of research that are of immediate interest to NMPF member cooperatives.
Graduate students pursuing research of direct benefit to milk marketing cooperatives and dairy cooperatives are encouraged to submit an application.
Recommended fields of study include but are not limited to agriculture, communications and journalism, animal health, economics, environmental science, food safety, genetics, herd management, marketing and price analysis, nutrition, and product development.
Applications are due no later than Monday, April 26. For an application, or for more information, visit the NMPF website or call the NMPF office at (703) 243-6111.
