Students who are accepted for full-time enrolment in a graduate/professional school programme for the 2019-2020 academic year are encouraged to apply.

Up to three students will be selected for fellowships of $20,000 spread across two academic years. The fellowship requires students to pursue coursework and research in the livestock and meat marketing areas.

“Land-grant universities have provided valuable educational services to pork producers for over 100 years,” said Steve Meyer, economist for Kerns and Associations. “I believe that making livestock marketing coursework and research more attractive will draw more students to the diminishing field of study.”

The guidelines and application form for the fellowship application can be found online. Send all submission materials by 22 May to: National Pork Board, Attention Bill Winkelman, 1776 NW 114TH St., Clive, IA 50325.
