The Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association and Tennessee Cattlewomen’s Association will award three scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year. These are $600 scholarships that will be awarded to students that are involved in the beef industry, pursuing a career in the beef industry and emerging industry leaders.
The application process will be evaluated 50% on the essay describing an issue confronting the beef industry in Tennessee, and 50% based on involvement in 4-H, FFA, and/or cattle youth activities. The application also includes three letters of reference. The applicant must be a Tennessee Cattlemen’s Youth Association member or the child/grandchild of a TCA or TCWA member.
“TCA is proud to help support the future of our industry be offering a scholarship to deserving youth interested in studying agriculture,” said Charles Hord, Executive Vice President of TCA. “We look forward to seeing what the future holds for them.”
The 2018 scholarship application must be received by June 15, 2018. The application can be found in the April, May, and June issues of the Tennessee Cattle Business magazine or online HERE.
