Over $228,000 in scholarships awarded at 2024 National Junior Angus Show

A group of ambitious young cattlemen and women from across the United States were awarded scholarships from the Angus Foundation at the 2024 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) in Madison, Wisconsin.

“[The Angus Foundation scholarship] is supporting me in my next steps in life,” said Rosalind Kidwell, recipient of the Gary Brost Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Award and Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program Undergraduate Scholarships.

Kidwell plans to attend Purdue University this fall, majoring in biochemistry with a minor in animal science. “You don’t realize how much college costs until you start adding it up,” Kidwell said. “The Angus Foundation scholarships truly offset that cost, especially with all these gracious donors. It makes me happy to be a part of the Association and to have these people surrounding me.”

Since 1998, The Angus Foundation has awarded more than $4.2 million in undergraduate and graduate scholarships.

“The Angus Foundation is thankful for our donors that graciously give to support our upcoming leaders and their future endeavors.” said Jaclyn Boester, Angus Foundation executive director. “We’re proud to be able to make an impact on so many of our outstanding Angus leaders.”

A five-member committee consisting of industry experts, Foundation board members, Angus breeders and National Junior Angus Association board members evaluates the applications. The committee considers involvement, participation, leadership, service, career goals and other criteria set forth in the scholarships’ fund agreements.

“They are building up the future leaders of our industry and of the world. I think it is a great thing that we have them.” said Kidwell. “A huge thank you to the Foundation. I hope that in the future I can have the means to donate to the Foundation and also help support kids like me who are wanting to make a difference and impact in the agriculture industry.”
