Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative is looking to award two, $1,000 college scholarships to children of its members. Applicants must be high school seniors, high school graduates or college undergraduates enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited four-year college or university or a two-year program at a technical, junior or community college.
The area of study does not need to be in agriculture, but preference may be given to students pursing a degree in an agricultural field. Only dependents of Edge members qualify. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on academic achievement, leadership, participation in school and community activities, academic honors, goals and aspirations, recommendations and work experience.
“Edge is proud to support young people as they further their education. We feel strongly in supporting our member families,” said Tim Trotter, executive director of Edge.
The application with full guidelines is available at voiceofmilk.com. Applications must be postmarked by May 1, 2018. For more information, contact Lauren Brey at 920-883-0020, ext. 107, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
