Pork industry scholarship programme

15-09-2008 | |

Pioneer Hi-Bred has partnered with the Pork Checkoff and PIC to offer scholarships to sophomore, junior and senior level college students considering a graduate degree program in a swine science discipline or planning a career in the pork industry.

The Pork Industry Scholarship programme will offer a $10,000 scholarship to the top applicant, a $5,000 award to the runner-up and $2,500 awards to a minimum of 17 other students, for the 2008-2009 school year.

The contribution by Pioneer will fund the $5,000 award in the program and the scholarship will be termed the Pioneer Hi-Bred Pork Industry Scholarship. PIC’s generous contribution will fund one of the $2,500 awards.

The Pork Checkoff and its two industry partners have joined to address one of the pork industry’s critical issues, the development of human capital.

College students starting their sophomore, junior or senior year and considering careers in agricultural business, agriculture engineering, agronomy, animal science, animal physiology, environmental sciences, nutrition, reproduction, veterinary medicine and other related fields and students considering a career in the pork industry are encouraged to apply for the scholarships.
