Angus Australia is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2024 Kansas State University Scholarship, which is making its return to the scholarships, awards and bursaries program for the first time since 2019.
Angus Australia is very excited to bring back this scholarship, sponsored by the Angus Foundation, which provides opportunity for a young beef cattle enthusiast the chance to study at one of the best agricultural universities in the USA.
The Kansas State University Scholarship provides an Angus member with the opportunity to study at Kansas State University for one semester (US Spring Semester, January through to April/May).
Beef cattle are a key focus of study at Kansas State University (KState). With their own seedstock and commercial herd, feedlot, feed mill, brilliant teaching facilities and staff, the university offers an exceptional learning environment. KState also operate their own seedstock bull sale to which the successful applicant will have the opportunity to work alongside other students in all aspects of the sale.
In addition to the on-campus study and events, the scholar will have the opportunity to experience parts of the US beef supply chain from leading seedstock operations, cow calf operations through to feedlots and the end supply chain.
The program can be tailored to the applicant’s particular interest to take in the best parts of the Kansas beef industry and the National industry more broadly by attending leading events and organisations.
The scholarship is open to any young beef cattle enthusiast who is a member of Angus Australia wanting to increase their knowledge of all facets of the beef industry. To be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must be between 21 and 30 years of age and also be a current financial member of Angus Australia.
Angus Australia Extension Manager Jake Phillips encourages any young person who is eligible to apply and has an interest in investing the beef industry on a global basis to apply for the scholarship.
“Not only does this scholarship represent a once in a lifetime opportunity for the recipient, but it also provides the recipient with $15,000 to cover the costs of attending KState,” said Jake.
“This scholarship would not be possible without the particular support of the staff at Kansas State University lead by Dr Dan Moser, long-time friend and partner of Angus Australia.”
Applications will close Monday the 11th of September.
