NPPA seeking students for 2020 Pork Mentorship Program

To date, nearly 150 students have completed the Nebraska Pork Producers Association program and over $75,000 in scholarships have been awarded.

The Nebraska Pork Producers Association is now accepting applications for its 2020 Pork Mentorship Program. Any student connected to agriculture and believes in the future of the pork industry is encouraged to apply.

"The NPPA Pork Mentorship Program is more than just a scholarship," says Kyla Habrock, NPPA youth education director. "It's a way for students to build their capacity as a leader and professional in the pork and agriculture industries in Nebraska. The program provides students with an opportunity to identify future career goals and to evolve into strong agricultural advocates."

The Pork Mentorship Program was established in 1999. To date, nearly 150 students have completed the program and over $75,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Each year the students participate in activities that encourage personal growth, leadership development, community engagement, and expand their knowledge of the pork industry. A $500 scholarship is awarded upon the completion of the year-long program.

College-age students who have an interest in the pork industry are eligible for the 2020 scholarships. There is no requirement to come from a pork production family.  Students may apply by visiting the youth tab on the NPPA site. Applications are due. Dec. 15.
