The Tennessee Cattlemen's Association was founded in 1985 and has been a leader and a voice for cattle producers in the state ever since. TCA staff and leadership work with local, state, and federal officials on issues that matter to your farm. TCA is a supporter of youth programs such as livestock exhibiting and 4-H groups, and also supports research conducted by university specialists. Throughout their generosity, TCA also offers scholarships to students who are interested in related fields.
Three scholarships of $600 will be awarded to outstanding students who are pursuing careers in the beef industry. Fields of study may include education, communications, production, research or any other area involved in the beef industry. The purpose of this program is to identify and encourage talented and thoughtful students who will emerge as industry leaders.
Applicants must be a graduating high school senior or full-time undergraduate student enrolled at a two- or four-year institution in Tennessee for the upcoming school year and must have demonstrated a commitment to a career in the beef industry through classes, internships or life experiences. Previous scholarship winners are eligible to apply in subsequent years but preference will be given to new applications.
