NILE Scholarship Applications

Deadline: March 1, 2018
Billings, Mont.--The Northern International Livestock Exposition (NILE) Scholarship Program funded by the NILE Foundation, is now accepting applications for scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Since 1990, the NILE has awarded scholarships to deserving FFA and 4-H students that have been actively involved in their respective programs and communities, excelled in the classroom, and participated in NILE events. "Promoting the future of agriculture through the support of youth via scholarships is a long-standing tradition of NILE." says Jennifer Boka, General Manager of the NILE. "Educating today's youth to be tomorrows ag proponents is crucial to the entire world and we at the NILE are proud to support and embrace the future of agriculture."

Similar to previous years, the NILE Scholarship Committee will be awarding five levels of scholarships.
High School One Time Scholarship - Awarded to high school seniors that meet the qualifications listed in the guidelines.
Secondary One Time Scholarship - Offered will also be a one-time grant, for students already enrolled in College or a Vo-Tech school meeting the qualifications.
Shining Star: All qualified applicants are eligible. This scholarship is for an applicant that stands out in the crowd.
Needle In The Haystack – This scholarship will be awarded to any NILE scholarship applicant if they attend Stetsons & Stilettos in May 2018. The winner will be randomly drawn that night.
Rolling Scholarship - The rolling scholarships will be offered to a select group of High School Seniors who will have the opportunity to renew the scholarship yearly, up to four years of their secondary education. Recipients of rolling scholarships will be chosen from the pool of applicants that are current seniors in High School.

Each year the NILE touches the lives of nearly 10,000 youth through its many youth programs, events, "live" animal scholarships, and college scholarships. Every year the NILE Foundation provides over $55,000 in cash and live animal scholarships.

The NILE Foundation was established in 2009 as a supporting arm of the NILE organization, which is dedicated to the promotion of livestock, agriculture education, and respect for the western culture.

Scholarship applications and guidelines can be found on the NILE's website, or by contacting the NILE Office at 406-256-2495. Applications must be submitted to the NILE Office by March 1, 2018 at 5 p.m. (postmarked March 1st will not be accepted). Applications incomplete or late will not be considered.

Stella McKinstry Scholarship – 2018-2019

Stella McKinstry was a devoted friend and supporter of Family and Consumer Sciences for many years. When she retired in 2006 she was honored with an award from Extension for her 60 year career – the longest on record. Stella began working for Extension in 1946 shortly after her graduation from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in home economics. She chose to come to Wyoming because the starting annual salary for Extension agents was $2,100 – a full $300 more than her home state. Wyoming received more than its money’s worth from Stella over the years. She had a zest for life, an attitude toward service, and a joy of learning. Describing herself as a life-long learner, Stella said “You never work a day in your life if you enjoy what you are doing.”
Upon her passing in 2016, additional funds from her estate were added to her scholarship fund creating the largest scholarship endowment in the department. This gift will be a wonderful way to recognize all of Stella’s accomplishments for many years to come.
To be eligible for this scholarship award, an applicant must be majoring in one of the degree programs offered by the Family and Consumer Sciences Department, and be in good academic standing. Preference will be given to applicants who have participated in 4-H youth programs.
Applications close February 1, 2018.
