GREEN BAY, Wis. — Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative will award five $2,000 secondary education scholarships to its membership, the cooperative announced today.
Applicants must be high school seniors, high school graduates or college undergraduates. They must be 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 agriculture-related.
“Edge remains committed to supporting education and giving back to our members’ families, but we all know actions speak louder than words. This scholarship program allows us to back up our promise,” Chief Executive Officer Tim Trotter said. “I truly hope that the young people looking to further their education take the opportunity to apply.”
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.
Applications must be postmarked by April 30. For more information, contact Lauren Laubscher at 715-584-7117 or [email protected].
