Lauber Receives National Dairy Leadership Scholarship

Megan Lauber, a doctoral candidate in Dairy Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been selected by the National Milk Producers Federation Board of Directors as one of five graduate students researching in areas that benefit dairy cooperatives and producers to receive scholarships as part of the 2024 NMPF National Dairy Leadership Scholarship Program.

“Congratulations to each recipient of this year’s NMPF scholarships,” said NMPF President and CEO Gregg Doud. “Supporting high-quality dairy research benefits our members and cooperatives, which fundamentally is what NMPF strives to do every day. We look forward to the contributions these scholars will make to the dairy community. We’re thrilled to help these students succeed.”
