The Angus Foundation makes available general scholarships to students pursuing an undergraduate degree in higher education.
Eligible Angus youth meeting the qualifications for the Angus Foundation's Undergraduate Scholarship Program will be considered by the Angus Foundation's Scholarship Selection Committee. These general scholarships for Angus youth are made possible only by the generous financial support from Angus breeders, allied industry interests and friends of the Angus breed through the Angus Foundation Heifer Package, outright cash gifts and other fundraising activities.
Two $5,000 scholarships will be 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. Scholarship recipients will be recognized at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS).
As determined by the Angus Foundation, applicants may also be eligible for other Angus-related named scholarships, permanently endowed and managed by the Angus Foundation. Past recipients of Angus Foundation general undergraduate scholarships can continue to apply for named scholarships unless specified otherwise by the Angus Foundation.
Each year, the Angus Foundation reserves the right to also award scholarship(s) to eligible applicants based on financial need, personal and/or family hardship, physical handicap, medical disability, other extenuating circumstances or combination thereof when determined such sufficiently exists to warrant special consideration by the Angus Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee for this purpose.
