Today’s college costs are astronomical — it’s a known fact. The Angus Foundation seeks to help Angus youth offset some of those steep costs by awarding undergraduate and graduate level scholarships.

“Angus youth are the future of our Association and the industry,” said Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “We want to help them get a head start in any way that we can, and awarding scholarships is one way to do that.”

Undergraduate and graduate student scholarship applications are available online at angusfoundation.org and are due May 1. Applicants must have, at one time, been a National Junior Angus Association member and must currently be an active Junior, Regular or Life member of the American Angus Association. Applicants must be a graduating high school senior or enrolled at a junior college, four-year college/university or other accredited institution and have a minimum 2.0 GPA. Eligibility requirements and application guidelines are included. Applicants will want to strictly adhere to the guidelines and provide the information requested when submitting their application to the Angus Foundation.

Applicants are required to submit the following for consideration: the 2018 application form; three letters of recommendation; copy of current high school/college/university transcript; and applicant’s Association member code.

In 2017, the Angus Foundation awarded more than $213,000 in scholarships to more than 115 undergraduate and graduate students. When combined with other endowed and non-endowed scholarship funds administered by the Angus Foundation, nearly $300,000 was invested in more than 130 students pursuing their higher education.
