Milwaukee -- In continued support of the future of animal agriculture, Lallemand Animal Nutrition will once again award five Lallemand Forward scholarships to North American students. Three $2,500 undergraduate scholarships, one $3,000 master’s scholarship and one $3,000 Ph.D. scholarship will be awarded to students who are excelling in their agriculture studies in the United States, Mexico or Canada.
“We initiated the Lallemand Forward Scholarship last year to recognize outstanding agriculture students who showed a passion for the industry,” says Jeff Ast, Commercial Director, Lallemand Animal Nutrition, North America. “We were very impressed with the quality of the candidates we received, so this this year, Lallemand wants to continue to support students as they advance their knowledge in the agriculture industry.”
Undergraduate students who hold junior status or higher and have a minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent, are asked to submit a résumé, along with a 500-word essay describing “What’s the biggest challenge agriculture is faced with today?”. Master’s and doctoral students who are enrolled in an agricultural graduate program, and who have a cumulative GPA of a 3.0 out of 4.0 or equivalent, are asked to submit a synopsis of their current work/project, along with their résumé.
The scholarships will be awarded at the beginning of the fall 2016 semester.
