Scholarship History: NPFDA SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION The NPFDA Scholarship Foundation was established in 1979. Since that time, the Foundation has awarded nearly $200,000 in scholarships to outstanding students. The NPFDA Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is entering its 35th year of assistance to help build "People Resources" for the poultry and food industries by providing scholarships to students pursuing an education in all fields relating to the poultry industry. All land grant colleges and universities throughout the country, along with other qualified schools, receive full details of the scholarship program for circulation to those students who would qualify for consideration each Winter for the upcoming academic year. Each student must complete the application, write a one page narrative on their goals and ambitions, and submit these papers with their transcripts. In late Spring, the scholarship committee will review all applicants. The scholarship winners are chosen based their aspirations as well as their academic progress. It is our goal, not only to help students achieve their degrees, but to help students who may become effective leaders in our industry one day.
