The dairy industry is big business in Idaho, and is one of the strongest sectors of our agriculture economy. But what does the future of dairy farming look like in the state?

That question is one of the reasons Chobani started the Chobani Scholars Program. This is a multi-year scholarship program to support students with family connections to dairy farming and who plan to pursue a career in the dairy farming industry. All of the students selected will attend the University of Idaho College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
