For the third year, Lely North America is presenting the Future of Dairy Scholarship Program, which will give five qualified students residing in either Canada or the U.S. a one-year, $1,000 scholarship.
To apply for the scholarship, students have to be at least 18 years of age, enrolled at an accredited institution of higher education for the 2018-19 academic year, in a program that can equip the student to contribute to the dairy industry. Students must also have been current or previous members of the 4-H or FFA organizations.
Entry requirements ask that students interested in applying submit the following items with their application:
1. An essay response to the following question (500-700 words): “How would you explain the benefits of dairy automation to consumers?”
2. A 1 – 2 page personal resume depicting their previous leadership/organizational involvement
3. A letter of recommendation from their 4-H or FFA advisor/leader/youth coordinator
4. A letter of recommendation from an academic advisor.
