The following are a few points that you should keep in mind as you prepare the scholarship application:

3. Scholarships will be awarded independently of University and CASNR scholarships.

4. Some scholarships will be awarded based on specific interests. Thus, we ask that you be as specific as possible when completing the application in regard to your work experiences, interests and extra-curricular activities. You are also encouraged to expand on your experiences and future plans in section H.

5. Awards will be announced in March 2017, but scholarship dollars will be awarded during your freshman year, and a recognition ceremony will be part of the Animal Science Alumni Reunion in October 2017.

6. Freshman scholarships are a one-time award. However, in the spring of each year, current students may apply for other departmental scholarships.

7. If you have a specific interest in feedlot management or nutrition, you may also want to complete the Animal Science Feedlot Management Scholarship Application. These scholarships are available to incoming freshmen, as well as current students. It is also available on the webpage.
