Two, $4,000 scholarships are offered to Maryland dairy youth who are enrolled in or have been enrolled in a 4-H-Future Farmers of America dairy project (all dairy breeds) and are pursuing a four-year degree in any agricultural program at the college of choice.
The scholarships are available to entering college freshmen through entering college seniors. The scholarships may be won twice; however, applicants must apply each year.
Applications can be obtained by contacting Arthur and Peggy Johnson at 301-972-8247.
A recent wallet-size photo (headshot only) and an official transcript must accompany the application.
Applications must be typed in space allotted using a 12-point font, and postmarked no later than July 1 for consideration.
The scholarships are possible due to the generous donation for a Friend of Maryland Dairy Youth and 4-H and have been awarded since 1998.
The scholarships will be presented at the Maryland State Fair during the Dairy Awards Program.
