Sullivan Supply is offering 20 scholarships of $1,000 each to youth displaying a great passion for the livestock show industry and/or livestock production. Applications are due March 15, and students can apply online at www.sullivansupply.com, where they can also download and mail a paper application.
Candidate must be a graduating high school senior or college student 21 years of age or younger; resident of the U.S. or Canada, and not a previous Sullivan scholarship winner. An agriculture major or a career goal in livestock is not a requirement but a continued future involvement in the livestock industry is.
Application guidelines include the following:
- List or describe your school, community, 4-H and/or FFA involvement. (There is no limit on this essay.)
- Describe your involvement and experience in showing and/or raising livestock, along with your future goals and career plans in an essay (no more than two typed pages).
- One letter of recommendation must accompany each application. (One only, please.)
- Return completed application and a recent photo by March 15 by email or U.S. mail. Do not send application in more than once.
The scholarship is funded solely through Sullivan Supply and Sullivan Supply South. The scholarship recipients will be selected by a committee of five industry leaders that will be kept confidential to promote objectivity. Members of the Sullivan family or Sullivan Supply employees or immediate family members will not serve on this committee nor will they be eligible to receive the scholarships. All scholarship recipients will be announced on http://www.sullivansupply.com/ on May 1.
