East Central/Select Sires is excited to present these scholarships to its customers' families to ensure agriculture has a bright future!
Select Sires Inc. is a federation of nine farmer-owned cooperatives. It provides highly-fertile semen as well as excellence in service and programs to achieve its basic objective of supplying livestock breeders with America’s best genetics at a reasonable price. At East Central/Select Sires, we are proud to serve dairy and beef producers in southern Wisconsin.
The applicant must be presently enrolled in a four-year college or a one- or two-year technical college or short-course program in an agricultural-related field OR be a high school senior admitted into one of the aforementioned programs. Also, the applicant or their parent(s) must be currently purchasing semen and/or farm products from an East Central/Select Sires representative.
Seven (7) winners will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Two of the scholarships are designated for technical-school or short course students. Winners will receive notification (during month of July) of their award prior to the formal presentation at the East Central/Select Sires Annual Meeting in August.
Complete the application fully -- adding additional pages to answer the essay questions. Save as a pdf on your computer with your name included in the file name (ie: John Smith Scholarship 2018.pdf). If you e-mail your application, include all the documents (i.e. transcript, letter of recomendation, etc.) in one e-mail. If you mail your application, include all documents in one envelope.
Since East Central/Select Sires is in the midst of a merger with NorthStar Cooperative, our scholarship program will change. Please watch for more details on the new program -- most likely sometime this summer. Thank you.
