Healthcare Scholarship: National Poultry & Food Distributors Association Scholarship

Overview of the National Poultry & Food Distributors Association (NPFDA) Scholarship

The National Poultry & Food Distributors Association (NPFDA) Scholarship is a prize of $2,000, awarded by the NPFDA to exceptional students of agricultural studies. The scholarship is intended to encourage and assist undergraduate students pursuing poultry-related studies, including students majoring in agriculture, agricultural business, food marketing, agricultural economics or pre-veterinary studies.

In order to qualify for the award, applicants must provide the NPFDA with a sealed, current official transcript, a letter of recommendation, a completed application form, and a one-page letter. The letter of recommendation may come from the student’s academic dean, department head and/or advisor. A winning applicant will furnish a letter that reflects his or her commitment to the field of agriculture and academic excellence. The personal letter must be no longer than one page. In the letter, the student should describe his or her goals and aspirations for the future. In a winning application, this personal letter will provide additional information, not found already within the official transcript or the letter of recommendation. Ideally, both the essay and the letter of recommendation should be sent together with the application form.

On the application form, itself, students must provide basic biographical information and contact information, including parents’ names and occupations. Students must also list any scholarships they have received previously or are receiving at present. On the application, you must also list all other honors and awards you have received at college. Finally, you should list any “poultry-related activities,” both past and current. These may include jobs, volunteerism, academic projects or research-related activities.

As of 2014, all of the applications must be received by the NPFDA by May 31st. However, as dates may vary slightly from year to year, it’s advisable to consult with the NPFDA to confirm the most up-to-date information. Applications may be sent by post or via the online application process, through the NPFDA’s website. Official transcripts, which should be sent directly from the student’s school, should be ordered to be sent to the NPFDA as soon as possible. (Official transcripts not received by May 31st will not necessarily be disqualified, provided that all other application materials are received by the deadline.)
