The Delmarva Chicken Association offers annual scholarships to students from the Delmarva region – the state of Delaware, plus the eastern shore counties of Maryland and Virginia – who are interested in pursuing a career in the region’s chicken industry. That industry is broader than just raising chickens. According to the DCA website, potential career options in the chicken industry include accountants, electricians, marketers, chemists, nutritionists, computer scientists and mechanics, for example. The scholarship is open to current undergraduates and high school seniors accepted into any accredited college or university in the U.S. Graduate students who are pursing research that directly benefits the DCA are eligible for their own award as well.
