DATCP to Offer New Scholarship Program for Dairy Students
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/04/2018

Wisconsin students interested in going into a career rated to the dairy industry can now apply for a new scholarship program to help cover the cost of tuition. State Agriculture Secretary Sheila Harsdorf announced that applications for the Governor's Dairy Scholarships will be accepted through June 1.

The program is available to Wisconsin residents of any age and at any point in their dairy careers. However, they must have already been involved in the dairy industry and must plan to continue in the field of dairying.

"This is an exciting opportunity for our young people growing up on dairy farms, as well as for non-traditional students who are already contributing to our dairy industry," Harsdorf said. "Dairying is so important to Wisconsin's economy, and we need to keep growing and developing those skills and knowledge to continually reinvigorate the industry. I encourage our graduating high school students, those already enrolled in classes, and our dairy professionals to take advantage of this opportunity."

Winning applicants must use the funds for programs that can be completed in two years or less. Four-year bachelor's degree programs do not qualify for scholarships under the new program.

The scholarships may be used only at Wisconsin Technical Colleges or University of Wisconsin campuses that have dairy programs.
