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 must also make a commitment to work in Missouri’s agriculture industry as a condition of receiving the scholarship.

Application Deadline for the 2018-2019 school year is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

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
