The Wayne-Ashland County Dairy Service Unit offers a scholarship to provide financial assistance to students in Wayne and Ashland counties that intend to go on to post-high school education in the field of agriculture, with a special interest in the dairy industry. There will be scholarships awarded separately to Wayne and Ashland County applicants. Scholarships typically range from $500 to $1000.
Applicants for the scholarship must be a resident of Wayne or Ashland County at the time of application, have graduated from an accredited high school program or be in their senior year, and have an agricultural background with interest towards continuing in agriculture. Special consideration is given to those applicants with a dairy background, involvement in a 4-H or FFA dairy project or having employment in a dairy based business.
