The National Dairy Herd Information Association (DHIA)announced it is accepting applications for $1,500 scholarships. They’ll go to third- or fourth-year College of Veterinary Medicine students. Applicants must be enrolled at a college that’s accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education.

To apply for a scholarship, applicants must submit a letter of application and two reference letters.

The letter of application requires young people to submit information like their area of specialty/interest, academic background, career plans, and other important information. Scholarship committee members will evaluate applicants based on overall interest as a veterinarian planning to work in dairy, involvement in dairy medicine, extracurricular activities, and interest in dairy software and dairy records to improve dairy management and animal health.


Applications are due on December 31.

Specific application requirements are on the National DHIA website at Recipients will be announced at the 2024 National DHIA Annual Meeting next year.
