Maryland & Virginia has released its annual scholarship application. Every year the cooperative awards five $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing careers in the dairy industry. Thanks to generous contributions from members, staff, industry partners and supporters, the cooperative is able to offer additional scholarships to deserving students.
To be eligible, applicants must be the son, daughter, grandchild or employee of an active co-op member, or the child of a Maryland & Virginia employee. Students must also be enrolled or enrolling in an accredited two or four-year college or university program.
The application requires that students submit a cover letter and resume, as well as responses to essay questions, an official school transcript and a letter of recommendation by February 21, 2020. Winners will be selected and announced in mid-April 2020.
