“Our dairy farm families play an important role in the success of their communities,” said Marty McKinzie, Dairy MAX’s vice president of industry image and relations. “We are honored to recognize these outstanding students for their achievements within the dairy industry and their communities through the scholarship program.”
“With the scholarship program, not only are we recognizing outstanding students, but we are empowering the next generation of the dairy farmers and advocates through supporting their higher education,” said McKinzie.
To be eligible for the Dairy MAX scholarship, students must reside in the Dairy MAX region, be a graduating high school senior or undergraduate student currently enrolled in college and be a child of a dairy farmer, child of a dairy farm employee or an FFA/4-H dairy show participant.
Investing in the recipients’ education propels dairy forward to continue feeding the world while nourishing communities. The 2021 Dairy MAX Scholarship application will open in January 2021.
