The Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association has been a long-time supporter of youth across the state through FFA, 4-H and scholarships. KCA has two education scholarships available funded by the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Foundation.
The KCF Youth Scholarship started in 1991 and has provided $74,000 in scholarship funds to students across Kentucky.  Five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to one graduating high school senior from each of the five KCA regions who plan to major in Agriculture or an Agriculturally-related subject.
The KCF Veterinary Medicine Scholarship began in 2008 and has awarded five veterinary students to date. Two $2,500 scholarships are available to third or fourth year Kentucky students currently enrolled in a College of Veterinary Medicine. A strong background in Kentucky’s Cattle Industry as well as intentions to return to Kentucky and practice food animal medicine is suggested for this scholarship.
Deadline for submission for the KCF Youth Scholarship and KCF Veterinary Scholarship is July 15 to the KCA Office at 176 Pasadena Drive, Lexington KY 40503. To download an application, view the requirements or for more information, please visit KCA online at www.kycattle.org under Foundation.
