DCA’s College Scholarship Program open to 2022 applicants
Delmarva Chicken Association has opened the application period for our 2022 College Scholarship Program. Applications are being accepted for undergraduate scholarships of $2,000 and graduate-degree scholarships of $3,000. Complete applications for these scholarships must be received by DCA no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8, 2022. 
Career opportunities in the chicken industry extend far beyond jobs in processing plants or on farms. Students majoring in accounting, engineering, marketing, veterinary science, nutrition, genetics, chemistry, environmental science, computer science, and many other areas of study will find their skills in demand in a chicken career.
Each applicant must be a student in good standing at an accredited institution of higher learning within the United States, or in the case of graduating high school seniors, accepted to an accredited institution within the United States. Students applying for undergraduate scholarships must be Delmarva residents who are pursuing a career path leading to employment in any segment of Delmarva’s chicken community. Graduate student scholarships are available to any student at a U.S. university who is engaged in research that directly benefits Delmarva’s chicken community. A complete transcript must accompany the application, and in the case of high school seniors, proof of college acceptance is required. Applicants must secure a letter of reference from an academic advisor or faculty member. DCA membership on the part of the applicant or his or her family is not required and has no bearing on the selection process.
