YOU COULD QUALIFY
Awards are made available for students currently enrolled in a college or university. High school graduating seniors qualify for scholarships upon entering their freshman year. The scholarship year begins with the fall semester/quarter of the respective year and runs through the spring term of the following year. If a student graduates mid-term they are eligible for 1/2 of the total scholarship award.
Awards are made on the basis of your interest -- current and future -- in the poultry industry, scholastic achievement and financial need.
High school graduating seniors, undergraduate and graduate students are eligible. Funds will be made available to full-time students enrolling in colleges or universities offering poultry curriculum in the eleven western states and the western provinces of Canada.
