Livestock Marketing Association Scholarship Program is NOW OPEN!
LMA Scholarship Applications
January 16, 2024
The Livestock Marketing Association scholarship program is intended to support students who are interested in or display knowledge and an understanding of the importance of livestock marketing and the livestock industry.
Now in its second year, the program has been expanded. Applicants must be a graduating high school senior and/or currently enrolled at an accredited post-secondary institution (i.e. trade school, community college, junior college, university, veterinary science, veterinary medicine or law) in the year of the award.
Following the deadline, scholarship applications will be reviewed by a panel of allied-industry, LMA leadership and/or LMA membership not sponsoring or related to applicants at time of application. Up to nine (9) post-secondary applicants will receive a $2500 one-time scholarship. The contact information and signature of an active LMA member endorsing the applicant must be submitted at the time of application. LMA members may not endorse more than two (2) applicants for the scholarship in the same academic year.
Please note that auction school is not a currently accepted institution for this application. There will be a separate scholarship application for those wishing to attend auction school and one (1) auction school applicant will receive a one-time scholarship of up to $2500 in tuition to an auction school program.
