In addition to naming the Angus Foundation as a charitable beneficiary in her estate plans, Camron “Cam” Cooper, owner of the Talon Ranch of Twin
Bridges, Mont., has provided for a graduate scholarship(s) to Angus youth through the creation of the Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program
Endowment Fund. This fund will also eventually support educational internships for Angus youth at host Angus breeders' farms across the United States. The
Angus Foundation Graduate Scholarship Program application will be used to select the Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program Endowment Fund scholarship recipients. All applicants for graduate student support from the Angus/Talon Educational Learning Program must be pursuing advanced degrees related closely to the beef cattle industry (i.e., animal science, meat science, food science, veterinary medicine, plant science, range and forage production, agricultural economics, agricultural communications, biochemistry and molecular biology, etc.). The Angus Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee reserves all rights in determining number of scholarships awarded and academic field of study requirements. First preference will be given to applicants having received financial support from the Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program Endowment Fund through the undergraduate student scholarship component of the Program and who have successfully maintained academic progress as required thereof with an accumulative 3.0 GPA when awarded their undergraduate degree. Academic performance is required for an applicant to be considered for the Angus/Talon Graduate Student Scholarship initially and to continue receiving the scholarship in subsequent years. Recipients may also receive other scholarships from the Angus Foundation or local, state, regional and national Angus-related entities.
