North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation will offer seven collegiate scholarships
Application deadline is March 1
North Dakota students who are interested in the state’s beef industry have seven $500 scholarship opportunities available to them through the North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation (NDSF) this year.
Among the offerings: the NDSF Junior Scholarships, which are available to college sophomores who, among other criteria, are enrolled in a beef-related major at an accredited North Dakota college or university; the NDSF Legacy Scholarships, which are available to high-school seniors, college freshmen, college sophomores or college juniors who have an interest in the beef cattle industry and are or will be studying any major at any college or university; and the new NDSF Endowment Scholarship, which is available to high-school seniors, college freshmen, college sophomores or college juniors who are or will be studying a beef-related major at any accredited North Dakota college or university.
Interested applicants can find more information and applications for each scholarship at www.ndstockmen.org. Applications will be accepted until March 1.
The scholarship recipients will be named during the NDSF Luncheon at the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association’s Annual Convention & Trade Show in Dickinson, N.D., in September.
The NDSF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was created to advance North Dakota beef industry leadership, scholarship, research, building and promotion objectives. It is currently administering the Aid for Atlas Disaster Relief Fund, which will provide support to North Dakota ranchers who suffered catastrophic livestock losses in the early October 2013 blizzard.
