The Missouri Dairy Scholars Scholarship Program was created to support students pursuing careers in the dairy industry. Students may qualify for up to $5,000 in scholarships if they are enrolled in a two-year or four-year Missouri college and work on a dairy farm or have a dairy-related internship. Students will also make a commitment to work in Missouri’s agriculture industry as a condition of receiving the scholarship.


Applications are now being accepted through Oct. 31, 2018. This year, a total of $40,000 will be awarded.

Scholarships will be selected on a competitive basis. Each application will be evaluated and rated using the following criteria:

Agriculture-related degree
Dairy-related work experience
Academic achievement and year in school
Resume and letters of recommendation
Future career plans
