116 scholarships were given to undergraduate and graduate students at the National Junior Angus Show in Des Moines, Iowa. The scholarships total more than $213,000.

“The Angus Foundation prides itself on making an incredible investment in the future of our industry — our youth — through education,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “Of course, very generous donors from across the Angus industry are really what makes this investment possible.”

A five-member committee evaluates the scholarship applications and considers National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) involvement, state association participation, leadership and other criteria.
