Angus scholarship opportunities available
The Angus Foundation and American Angus Auxiliary are providing several scholarship opportunities to Angus youth pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees.
The Angus Foundation will offer two $5,000 scholarships given in memory of former American Angus Association Executive Vice President Richard “Dick” Spader. In addition, a number of $3,000 scholarships and $1,000 scholarships will be awarded. As in past years, other specific and special criteria scholarships administered by the Angus Foundation will also be available.
Eligible Angus youth meeting the qualifications for the Angus Foundation’s 2010 Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarship Programs will be considered by the Angus Foundation’s Scholarship Selection Committee.
The American Angus Auxiliary will also award scholarships to qualifying graduating high school se niors.
Juniors must first be chosen as a state auxiliary scholarship winner before advancing to the national competition. Check with state scholarship contacts for specific state association deadlines.
