The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development announced that the deadline for 2013 Michigan Youth Livestock Scholarship applications is May 31.
To be eligible for the MYLSF general or statewide scholarship, applicants must be a Michigan resident and a graduating high school senior or a high school graduate continuing their education at an accredited institution in the year for which they are applying.
Since 2000, the Michigan Youth Livestock Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $350,000 in scholarships and educational awards to outstanding youth who have exhibited at the premier livestock events in the state of Michigan.
Charitable donations and specific proceeds from the Michigan State Fair Youth Livestock Auction and Michigan Livestock Expo help fund the scholarships. The fund is governed by a 10-member board of volunteers from Michigan’s agricultural community. Source GateHouse Media,
