Mountaire Farms, the country’s fourth largest chicken processer, has dozens of $2,500 scholarships available for the children and grandchildren of employees, poultry growers, and grain producers.

The deadline to apply is June 5, 2023. 

“This is another great benefit of working for or with Mountaire Farms,” said Phillip Plylar, President of Mountaire Farms. “It’s an honor to meet these families and see the commitment these students have to their education. We are blessed to be able to help them succeed.”

To be eligible, a student’s parent or grandparent must be employed by Mountaire Farms, or grow broilers, breeders, or grain (10,000-bushel minimum) for Mountaire. Applicants must enroll as a full-time college student carrying a minimum of 12 credits per semester in the current school year.

Successful applicants must be involved in extracurricular activities at school and in their community. Preference will be given to an industry-related course of study. A copy of the student’s transcript must be attached to the application.

The company will be announcing scholarship winners on July 3, 2023 and winners will be invited to an event in August where they will be recognized. On Delmarva, scholarship winners will be invited to a Delmarva Shorebirds game where they will be brought on field and announced to the audience in attendance that evening.
