The DFA Cares Foundation Scholarship Program is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 scholastic year until January 15. The foundation annually awards scholarships to incoming freshmen, current undergraduate and graduate/professional students pursuing a career in the dairy industry, or related field.

To be awarded the scholarship, the selection committee reviews applicants on the following criteria:

• Commitment and passion for a career in the dairy industry, as demonstrated through responses to three essay questions
• Extracurricular activities, awards, recognition and work experience
• Academic achievement

The DFA Cares Foundation Scholarship Program was created in response to the Cooperative's initiative to invest in the next generation of leaders and to ensure a bright future for the dairy industry.
