Record Observer - - News -

GE­ORGE­TOWN — Del­marva Poul­try In­dus­try Inc. has opened the ap­pli­ca­tion pe­riod for its 2017 Col­lege Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram. Ap­pli­ca­tions are be­ing ac­cepted for un­der­grad­u­ate and grad­u­ate schol­ar­ships that are avail­able in the amount of $1,500 or more.

Un­der­grad­u­ate ap­pli­cants must be a Del­marva res­i­dent and a stu­dent in good stand­ing at any ac­cred­ited, de­gree-grant­ing in­sti­tu­tion in the United States or in the case of grad­u­at­ing high school se­niors, ac­cepted to an ac­cred­ited, de­gree-grant­ing in­sti­tu­tion within the United States.

In­di­vid­u­als must have an aca­demic ma­jor in a sub­ject area rel­e­vant to Del­marva’s chicken in­dus­try and be plan­ning a ca­reer in a seg­ment of this in­dus­try. An of­fi­cial tran­script must ac­com­pany each ap­pli­ca­tion.

Grad­u­ate stu­dent ap­pli­cants must meet the above cri­te­ria, with the ex­cep­tion of Del­marva res­i­dency. In ad­di­tion, the in­di­vid­ual must be en­gaged in re­search that could pos­i­tively ben­e­fit Del­marva’s chicken in­dus­try.

Al­though an ap­pli­cant is not re­quired to have a fam­ily mem­ber or a fam­ily busi­ness that is a mem­ber of DPI, mem­ber­ship in DPI could be a de­cid­ing fac­tor when ap­pli­cants are oth­er­wise evenly matched. Pre­vi­ous re­cip­i­ents, if still el­i­gi­ble, may reap­ply.

Ap­pli­ca­tions must be com­pleted and re­ceived at the fol­low­ing ad­dress on or be­fore 4:30 p.m. on April 3: DPI Col­lege Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram, 16686 County Seat High­way, Ge­orge­town, DE 19947-4881.
