In April 2020, the Northeast Dairy Suppliers Association board of directors unanimously voted to rename the scholarship fund the Bruce W. Krupke Memorial Scholarships. Bruce served as Executive Vice President of Northeast Dairy Foods Association and Northeast Dairy Suppliers Association for 27 years before passing away in March 2020.
NEW THIS YEAR, the scholarship committee changed the student eligibility to now include UNDERGRADUATE and TRADE SCHOOL students (graduate students are no longer eligible)
The association will be awarding $2000 scholarships to students enrolled fulltime (min 12 credit hours) in a dairy science, food science or agriculture related major and $1000 scholarships to students enrolled fulltime in any major.
The scholarships are available to any immediate family member of a current NDSA or NDFA member, which includes all employees in the member company.
Scholarship applications must be POSTMARKED or EMAILED no later than June 1, 2021.
