New NHWSO Scholarship Application Process

Brattleboro, Vt. (October 30, 2012)…The directors of the National Holstein Women’s Scholarship Organization would like all Junior Holstein members to be aware of some changes made in their scholarship application process.  

1. The application has been adjusted to make it more quantitative to give the applicants a better opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and show their goals and plans.  It is a fillable form available NOW online from the NHWSO website (http://www.nhwso.com).  

2. The scholarship application is due February 1, 2013.  This is because applications are encouraged from all Junior members who fit the requirements (not just those attending the National Convention).

3. The applications will be pre-screened to determine which candidates will be asked to participate in the interview process.  Notification of a request for an interview will hopefully be early enough for the Juniors to make plans to attend.  

4. An additional requirement is the inclusion of a 2-3 minute video presentation.  

It is the sincere hope of the NHWSO membership to include more young people in this scholarship process and to be more mindful of the economics of attending a convention.  Contact Scholarship Chairman, Alicia Lamb at JLLACC@rochester.rr.com or 585-993-8026 if you have questions.
