Angus Foundation Grants Record Scholarships, Awards

Angus youth received $230,000 in scholarships and LEAD awards at 2020 NJAS.


As higher education costs continue to rise, the Angus Foundation continues to raise the bar on its investment in the next generation. Through the generosity of Angus Foundation donors, academic scholarships will offset the cost of undergraduate and graduate degrees for National Junior Angus Association members. A record 97 scholarships and LEAD conference awards were earned by Angus youth totaling $230,000 in a July 25 virtual presentation during the 2020 National Junior Angus Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“We received an unprecedented number of applications this year,” Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director said. “We are thankful for our generous Angus Fund and endowment donors. Year after year, they step forward to encourage our Angus youth in their studies as well as in leadership and career development programs and cutting-edge research to advance the breed.”

A five-member committee consisting of industry experts, Foundation board members, Angus breeders and National Junior Angus Association board members evaluate the applications. The committee considers involvement, participation, leadership, service, career goals and other criteria set forth in the scholarships’ fund agreements. Since 1998, the Angus Foundation has awarded more than $3.1 million in undergraduate and graduate scholarships.
