The Kansas State University Scholarship allows a young beef cattle enthusiast the chance to study at one of the best agricultural university’s in the USA.

Beef cattle are a key focus of study and research at Kansas State University. With their own seed stock and commercial herd, feedlot, feed mill, brilliant teaching facilities and staff, the university offers an exceptional learning environment.

Not only does this scholarship represent a once in a lifetime opportunity for the recipient, it provides the recipient with $10,000 to cover the costs of attending Kansas State University.

Whilst at the University they also get the chance to become fully involved with campus activities and be able to visit local beef producers and agribusinesses, including Certified Angus Beef.

To apply for this scholarship applicants must be aged between 21 and 30 years (age at 1st January) and be current Angus Australia members. Previous university study is not a requirement.
