The sum of $1,000 is available to a student from a Montana home who is at least a sophomore attending a Montana university or college. Preference will be given to a student majoring in a field beneficial to the livestock industry. Payment will be made in installments during the following year.
April 15, 2014 is the final date for acceptance of applications. Forms for the scholarship are available from the Financial Aid Offices of the state colleges and universities, or from the Scholarship Committee Chairman or by going online to our website: www.montanacattlewomen.org .
The scholarship is awarded to the student whom the committee determines to have the best balance of scholarship, citizenship, and financial need. In the event that more than one student has top qualifications, the student with the AG-oriented background will be given preference. In addition, members or children of members of Montana CattleWomen, Inc. may also be given preference. A college grade point average of 2.7 is required. The potential for a successful future will be a factor in the final decision.
Please contact your local school personnel and members of your local CattleWomen/CowBelle group, as they may know of a student from your local area who qualifies for the scholarship and wishes to apply. These students should be contacted and informed of the scholarship.
This scholarship is supported by a memorial fund, separate from the general fund of Montana CattleWomen. Tax deductible donations from individuals and CattleWomen locals are the only source of income for the fund. We would encourage you to consider making a donation to the scholarship fund. Most gifts are sent in memory of an individual. The family of that person is notified that the gift was made. It is also acknowledged at a memorial service during the annual state convention in December.
Thanks for your help by supporting our young people and our industry through this scholarship.
