The Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association makes available seven $3,000 scholarships to undergraduate students for annually to directly support Student Leader Scholarships. Five of them are designated as Dairymen’s Association Scholarships, while two are designated as Center Foundation Scholarships.

To qualify, students must demonstrate a commitment to working in the dairy industry. One of the scholarships will be designated for an incoming freshman. The purpose of these scholarships is to provide recognition, encouragement, and financial assistance to outstanding students enrolled in academic programs that support the dairy industry.
