CAB to award record $100k in scholarships
Certified Angus Beef (CAB) will award a record amount of $100,000 in scholarships across three categories this year. The Colvin Scholarship Fund, named in honor of Louis M. “Mick” Colvin, co-founder and former executive director of CAB, aims to empower students who are dedicated to advancing the beef industry.

Over its two-decade legacy, the fund has supported more than one hundred students pursuing their educational and professional goals in agriculture. With increasing support from brand partners, this amount continues to grow. In 2023, the CAB awarded $81,500 to 23 scholars.

“The Colvin Scholarship Fund represents our commitment to nurturing the future leaders of the beef industry,” says Danielle Matter, director of brand experience and education. “We are thrilled to increase our support this year, providing even more opportunities for aspiring professionals.”

The 2024 Colvin Scholarship supports the next generation of agricultural leaders who are dedicated to preserving farm and ranch traditions, researching and developing improved beef quality practices and devoting their careers, studies and activities to making the beef industry even better.

The production agriculture, undergraduate and graduate scholarship categories each have unique requirements including essay questions, resumes, and letters of recommendation.

Scholarship recipients will receive financial support and the opportunity to connect with industry leaders and mentors. Top-place winners in each category will receive $7,500 and an all-expense paid trip to the 2024 CAB Annual Conference in Verona, New York, providing them with a platform to connect with professionals from across the beef industry.

Applications for the 2024 Colvin Scholarship are now open and will close April 30. Interested students can learn more about eligibility criteria and apply by visiting
