The NPFDA (National Poultry & Food Distributors Association) Scholarship Foundation is entering its 34th year of scholarship assistance. Every year, we award four $1,500.00 scholarships to students in the fields of poultry science, food science, agricultural economics/marketing, nutrition and all other areas of study related to the poultry industry.
Interested students may apply for the 2013-2014 academic year scholarships by completing the attached application and sending it along with a 1 or 2 page letter explaining their career goals. They will then need to forward to LeeAnn Williams. It will then be necessary for their Dean or Department Head to forward the application, goals, transcripts, and an endorsement of the student to the NPFDA Scholarship Foundation.
The application, transcript and letter of endorsement must reach the NPFDA office no later than May 31, 2013. Selection and notification will be completed by July 15th.
Please send to:
The NPFDA Scholarship Foundation, Inc.
2014 Osborne Rd
St. Marys, GA 31558
Applications received after the May 31, 2013 deadline will not be considered.
Selection criteria for the scholarship will include, but not be limited to the following:
1. Students must be in their Junior or Senior (college) year when they receive the scholarship – therefore may be a sophomore or Junior when applying.
2. Consideration of academic excellence.
3. Applicants must be enrolled as a full time student in a U.S. University/College.
4. Past and current involvement in poultry, ag and food related activities.
5. Professional objectives of the student.
Scholarship checks will be forwarded to the Dean/Department Head during the summer and are to be disbursed to the student in equal installments each term after verification of the student's enrollment. Any unused funds are to be returned to The NPFDA Scholarship Foundation, Inc.
We appreciate your cooperation and effort in making known this worthy project to your students and your associates in the other areas of your school. Thank you!
