Applications for the 2014 Greenham dairy scholarship close on January 31.
Assistance with university studies has been the most popular choice with previous winners but the scholarship is also available for study tours and other courses that would help applicants make a greater contribution to the dairy industry.
Applicants may range in age from 17 to 45 but they must be family members, sharefarmers or employees of farmers who have sold cattle to Greenham’s Tongala processing plant during 2013.
H. W. Greenham executive chairman Peter Greenham urges farmers with eligible family members or employees to encourage their participation.
‘‘It is one of the more valuable agricultural scholarships available .
‘‘With less financial pressure they’ve been able to achieve better results.
‘‘Some winners have also applied the funds to overseas study that wouldn’t have otherwise been possible.’’
Mr Greenham said an independent judging panel would assess the applications and choose a winner by the end of February.
‘‘Just make sure you get your application in by the deadline.’’
