SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program is offering a $3,000 scholarship to students with an interest in the dairy product marketing industry. Students must be enrolled in an accredited university or college in Pennsylvania or be a Pennsylvania resident. Applications are due by December 19.

Preference will be given to a student who has experience in the dairy industry, or who shows an interest in marketing dairy foods as part of his or her undergraduate work or future career.
