Graduate Student Research Scholarships


As in previous years, the Distillers Grains Technology Council (DGTC) will again be providing a number of research scholarships to graduate students.  The goal of this program is to encourage increased research and to reward outstanding research accomplishments in distillers grains topics.


For over 60 years, the DGTC has provided an annual symposium on distillers grains. This symposium has a long tradition of covering current, relevant topics pertaining to distillers grains including production, processing, feeding, utilization, transportation, marketing, and non-traditional uses.


At this year's symposium, we intend to offer at least 3 to 4 $750 or $500 scholarships to current graduate students that have completed original research which has resulted in new knowledge on distillers grains production/distribution, animal feeding (nutrition), or other applications/uses.


This year's symposium is scheduled for May 17-18, 2017 in Indianapolis, IN. Winning applicants must attend the symposium, and will receive either a $750 or $500 scholarship, plus all pre-approved travel expenses to attend. Recipients will be required to prepare a poster describing their research, which will be exhibited at the symposium.  Additionally, the award winners will be required to give a 5-minute overview presentation of their research during one of the general sessions.


Scholarship applications will be accepted until March 1, 2017.


If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Kurt Rosentrater, Executive Director of the Distillers Grains Technology Council at karosent@iastate.edu.
