PIERRE, S.D. – The Central Plains Dairy Foundation is proud to announce that our mascots are visiting the central plains dairy region this month! Holly, Harriet, and Jolene will be presenting award checks to recipients of the Central Plains Dairy Foundation (CPDF) Dairy Scholarships Grant and visiting popular dairy sites in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota at the end of October. Each year the CPDF awards up to $30,000 in grants to be used for scholarships at post-secondary institutions across the Midwest.
The CPDF Dairy Scholarships Grant program is designed to support organizations and schools wishing to provide scholarships to dairy students. Students must be attending a two or four-year college that offers one or more dairy education programs. This grant and subsequent scholarships are intended for up-and-coming young leaders in the dairy industry. Awardees must attend a post-secondary school in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, or South Dakota.
