For the 10th consecutive year, NMC is offering four travel scholarships to full-time graduate students interested in controlling mastitis and improving milk quality. Successful applicants will apply these scholarships toward attendance at NMC’s 56th Annual Meeting, Jan. 29-31, 2017, in St. Pete Beach, Fla.
At least two NMC travel scholarship recipients will be graduate students at a university or college outside of the United States and Canada. Travel award scholarships for up to $1,500 will be given to U.S. and Canadian students; up to $2,500 for students attending school outside the United States and Canada.
Eligible candidates must be a graduate student enrolled full time at a college or university in a dairy, animal or veterinary science, microbiology or related program, at the time of application deadline, with an area of interest that includes mastitis control and quality milk production. Candidates must also be an NMC member.
The application deadline is July 31. Applicants will be notified by Sept. 1, regarding the selection committee’s decision. Selection priority will be given to applicants who have not previously attended an NMC Annual Meeting.
