The American Angus Auxiliary scholarships are presented annually. The total amount awarded will vary. Ten (10) scholarships will be awarded. The exact amount of the first, second, third, fourth and fifth place awards given to both boy and girl qualified applicants will be determined by May 1. Scholarships may be defined as financial grants for which no equivalent work is required.
Each state is entitled to submit one girl and one boy application for the national scholarships. The two applications must be submitted by the state or regional scholarship chairperson to the American Angus Auxiliary Scholarship Chairperson.
If your state does not have an Auxiliary State/Regional Scholarship Chair, a designated representative from the State/Regional Angus Association, or the State Junior Angus Advisors should submit the completed application. Please contact the American Angus Auxiliary Scholarship Chair with questions.
All scholarship applicants are encouraged to attend the National Junior Angus Show in early July.
The scholarship application is the basis from which the candidates are chosen to compete for Miss American Angus. Each girl submitting a scholarship application will be required to complete a form declaring her intent to compete/not compete for Miss American Angus if given the opportunity. The five highest placing girls choosing to compete for Miss American Angus will be announced at the National Junior Show. These girls will be required to attend the Miss American Angus contest held in November at the Angus Convention. The intent form and additional information on the role and requirements of Miss American Angus will be mailed to each girl applicant AFTER her scholarship application is received. (Please note: choosing not to compete for Miss American Angus does not affect scholarship eligibility.)
