Ruminant research can be rewarding
There is a June 1 application deadline for an American Sheep Industry Association scholarship program that awards $2,500 for “sheep–related graduate studies.” The scholarship’s objective is to advance and promote industries dependent on sheep, lambs or wool by providing financial support to a graduate student. Applicants should be enrolled in animal science, agriculture economics or veterinary medicine or another related area. Two letters of reference and proof of graduate school acceptance must accompany applications. Applications also require 250-word descriptions of a research project that lends support to scholarship qualifications.
