The National Cattlemen’s Foundation is now accepting applications for 2020-2021 beef industry scholarships sponsored by CME Group. Announced this week, the ten scholarships of $1,500 each will be awarded to students pursuing careers in the beef industry. The CME Beef Industry Scholarship was first introduced 30 years ago in 1989. Today, the scholarship recognizes and encourages students who will each play an important role in the future of food production in America. Students studying education, communication, production, research or other areas related to the beef industry should consider applying for the scholarship. Tim Andriesen of CME Group says the scholarships “strengthen the education of tomorrow’s industry leaders on risk management in the beef industry.” Online applications should be submitted by November 8, 2019, at midnight Central Time. Applicants must be a graduating high school senior or full-time undergraduate student enrolled at a two- or four-year college.
