If you or someone you know could use some cash toward college, be sure to check out this opportunity.

Applications are being accepted for 20 college scholarships that are awarded by America’s dairy producers through the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board (NDB). NDB funds, in part, Dairy Management Inc., which manages the national dairy checkoff program. The value of 19 of the scholarships is $1,500. In addition, the NDB awards a $2,500 James H. Loper Jr. Memorial Scholarship to the outstanding scholarship recipient.

Scholarship criteria include academic achievement, a career interest in a dairy-related discipline and demonstrated leadership, initiative and integrity. Eligible undergraduate students (sophomore through senior) enrolled in college/university programs that emphasize dairy can apply. Majors include: communications/public relations, journalism, marketing, business, economics, nutrition, food science and agriculture education.

Completed applications and all required documentation should be submitted to the NDB c/o Jolene Griffin, DMI, 10255 W. Higgins Road, Suite 900, Rosemont, IL 60018-5615, by April 15.  Questions can be directed to Griffin at (847) 627-3320 or e-mail her at: jolene.griffin@rosedmi.com
