Agri Beef Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: February 3, 2023 3:00 pm CT

Agri Beef Co. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Agri Beef Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 23 and under, of benefits eligible Agri Beef Co. employees who have a minimum of one (1) year of employment with the company as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent status is based on the ability of the employee to claim a tax exemption for the dependent child or stepchild. The child of a divorced parent who is a regular active employee, whether custodial or noncustodial parent, may apply if either parent may claim the child as a dependent. Agri Beef Co. may request applicants to submit proof of dependent status.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to ten (10) awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. A student may receive an award no more than four (4) times.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in March.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Agri Beef Co. Payment is made in August.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • A statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Agri Beef Co. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
