Two Madera organizations that work to promote the cattle industry are set to help students who are pursuing careers in the field.
The Madera County Cattlewomen’s and the Madera County Cattlemen’s associations will give four $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors in Madera County and students who don’t live in the county, but whose parents are part of either organization.
To apply, a student must have a background in beef or related agricultural field and be a spokesperson for the beef industry. Applicants must plan to pursue studies in a beef-related field in a junior college or university and must specify what that field is.
The deadline for submitting applications is March 29. Scholarship applications are available at Sierra High School at 33330 Lodge Road in Tollhouse. They are also available online at cemadera.ucdavis.edu/Youth_Development or from MCCW-MCCA Scholarship Chair Betty Samper, 34240 Road 607, Raymond CA 93653.
