ROUND-UP COMMERCIAL CATTLEMEN'S SCHOLARSHIP

There are two scholarships available to faciliate the involvement of youth interested in commerical beef production.

A private fund has been established to provide one, fully paid sponsorship for a young Red Angus enthusiast to attend Round-Up. This award will provide full registration expense to Round-Up as well as travel to Round-Up for the recipient. 

The founders of this award have two primary areas of intent:

1. Provide means for a young person with financial limitations to attend Round-Up

2. Encourage involvement of commercial operation-based young people with Round-Up and Red Angus junior programs

The Colorado Red Angus Affiliate has established a second scholarship to assist with a young commercial cattlemen's interest in attending Round-Up. Individuals interested in applying for the Colorado-sponsored "Beef Industry Scholarship" should contact the Junior Coordinator at juniors@redangus.org.

This funding for these scholarships are not intended for juniors already members of the JRA but for a young person with interest in Red Angus and the beef industry from a commercial background and one who would not be able to attend Round-Up due to expense. We are looking for young people who are motivated by the cattle industry and may benefit from attending Round-Up. Potential nominees may include children or grandchildren of your customers and bull buyers, farm- or ranch-oriented youth who don’t participate in JRA because they do not have registered cattle, young people who are buying bulls, or perhaps heifers, for use in a crossbreeding program.

RAAA and JRA members may suggest potential candidates by contacting the Junior Coordinator at juniors@redangus.org.  Participant suggestions are requested by April 1 to provide time for individuals to complete an application for scholarship selection by May 1.

The award founders will select the individual recipient.
