Each year the American Dairy Goat Association awards thousands of dollars in scholarships for education and participation to its members. Scholarship eligibility is just one of the great benefits of being an ADGA Member.
Convention Youth Scholarships are awarded based on answers to the following questions and criteria. Only one Convention Youth Scholarship from ADGA is awarded for each of the eight districts. If no scholarships were awarded for a district, the reason could be that no applications for that district were received.
