July 1 deadline to apply for Jersey youth scholarships

Advertisement

July 1 is the application deadline for seven scholarships and educational awards administered by the American Jersey Cattle Association.

These awards provide financial support to Jersey youth enrolled in colleges or universities or, in some cases, seeking hands-on experience in the development and management of Registered Jersey cattle. Applicants must be a junior or life member of the American Jersey Cattle Association. A minimum grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) is required to apply for these scholarships. Letters of recommendation and the applicant’s academic transcripts must be included with the application.

The Russell–Malnati Scholarship for Advanced Studies will be awarded in the amount of $5,000. Undergraduate students who have completed at least one-half of coursework credit hours required for a degree in dairy science, animal science (dairy emphasis), large animal veterinary practice, dairy production or manufacturing, or dairy product marketing, and graduate students in those program areas are eligible to apply.

The William A. Russell Memorial Scholarship of $1,250 will be presented to a student who will begin a program of study at an accredited college or university this fall.

The Cedarcrest Scholarship of $1,500 will be awarded to an undergraduate or graduate student seeking a degree in large animal veterinary practice, dairy production, dairy manufacturing, or dairy product marketing.

Also to be awarded is the $1,500 Bob Toole Jersey Youth Award, which can be used for either college expenses or a well-defined practical experience related to breeding, developing and showing Registered Jerseys.

The V. L. Peterson Scholarship ($1,250) and Paul Jackson Memorial Scholarship ($1,000) will be awarded to students who have completed at least one year of college or university work.

Residents of Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia are eligible to apply for the Reuben R. Cowles Jersey Youth Award. Applicants must be at least high school graduates, but not older than 36 years of age as of Jan. 1, 2013. The award may be applied to fund a trip to the AJCA-NAJ Annual Meetings or The All American Jersey Show and Sale, to defray college expenses, or support a well-defined Jersey-related educational activity. The amount of this award varies from year to year.

In addition to these awards, a Jack C. Nisbet Memorial Scholarship of $1,500 will be awarded to one eligible nominee in the 2012 National Jersey Youth Achievement Contest.

Applications are posted on the USJersey Scholarship Information page (www.usjersey.com/YouthProgram/scholarshipinfo.html).

Scholarships will be presented Nov. 9 at the annual junior banquet held during The All American Jersey Shows and Sales in Louisville, Ky.
