The Certified Angus Beef ® brand this year will split the Louis M. “Mick” Colvin Scholarship of $15,000 among five undergraduate scholarships, in the amounts of $5,000, $4,000, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000.
College juniors and seniors who have shown commitment to the beef industry, either through coursework or activities, should apply by the Dec. 2 deadline. Applications are evaluated on involvement and scholastic achievement, communication skills and reference letters.
A new opportunity, an additional $5,000 graduate level scholarship, will also be given to a full-time masters or doctorate student conducting research related to high-quality beef production. Applications for that award are due Jan. 13.
Mick Colvin co-founded Certified Angus Beef LLC in 1978 and served as president for 22 years.
The top two recipients also win an all-expense-paid trip to the 2012 CAB Annual Conference, Sept. 19-21 in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. This is an opportunity to interact with leaders throughout the production, packing, retail and foodservice industries.
The Colvin Scholarship Fund began in 1999 when Colvin retired as CAB executive director. Colvin co-founded the CAB program in 1978, leading to establishing the world’s leading brand of fresh beef.
