Seven scholarships will be awarded, three from the Klussendorf’s Chris Kampf fund and four from the McKown Fund. Students who are eligible include those that are successfully completing their first, second or third years at a 2-year or 4-year college or university in the United States or Canada majoring in dairy science, animal science, agri-business, or other related majors that will develop the skills needed to pursue a career in the dairy industry. Scholarships are based on activities, experience, interest in showing dairy cattle and future plans. These awards are made possible by donations from Chris Kampf, the McKown family and from Klussendorf members and friends.
Youth affiliated with all dairy breeds are encouraged to apply for these scholarships; however, the McKown scholarships will give preference to youth from predominately Holstein backgrounds. Past, present, or potential members of dairy cattle judging teams will receive special consideration. Applicants need to show leadership, participation in extracurricular activities, and a special interest and ability in showing dairy cattle in their best natural form.
