Students enrolled in a four-year, one or two-year short course or technical school ag-related program are encouraged to apply for Wisconsin Holstein Association scholarships that range from $250 to $1000.
All Wisconsin Holstein members are encouraged to apply for scholarships.
Students majoring in agricultural degrees are given highest consideration. Non-agricultural majors planning to have a career that contributes to rural communities also will be given consideration.
The Gordon Berg Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolled in a technical college, two-year, or short course agriculture program in the amount of $1,000.
The Doris Morris Memorial Scholarship and Bradley Fust Memorial Scholarship recipients also receive a $1,000 award.
Eligibility for all scholarships requires that applicants be a member of the Wisconsin Holstein Association at the time of application, enrolled in a four-year college, a one or two-year tech school, a short course program, or be a high school senior admitted into one of the before mentioned programs.
Scholarships are capped at $1,000 per scholarship recipient. Previous winners who were awarded less than the $1000 can apply again.
In 2011, the WHA Scholarship Committee awarded $12,000 in scholarships to Wisconsin Holstein members.
