Due to the generosity of our members donating and buying items in our youth auction scholarships will be offered again this year. The scholarships will be awarded during the virtual Shepherd’s Weekend. Please review the guidelines below and encourage qualified candidates to apply.

Applicant requirements:
Applicants may be a full-time freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior at a college, university or technical school.
Applicants may apply for the scholarship as many years as they meet the requirements but may only receive the scholarship once.

Scholarship scoring:
50 possible points on experience and involvement with the sheep industry
25 possible points on academic record
10 possible points on community service
15 possible points on the essay
25 bonus points if the applicant or their parent has been a member of MSPA for two years or more.
(In the case of a tie, it will be broken on the basis of a score for experience and involvement in the sheep industry.)

Questions can be directed to Brenda Reau at reau@msu.edu or 734-755-8285.
The application can be found on the MSPA website. All applications and supporting materials must be emailed in one package to reau@msu.edu. The deadline is 11:59 pm on December 13.
