Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation Youth Scholarships

The Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation (NCF) offers scholarships to qualified youth in Nebraska who have an interest in the beef industry. These scholarships will be awarded for the 2016-2017 academic year and are provided through contributions received by NCF.

The Nebraska Cattlemen Beef State Scholarship awards a $10,000 scholarship to an outstanding college junior, senior or graduate-level student. Eligible students must be residents of Nebraska and be enrolled in a Nebraska college or university pursuing a beef industry-related degree. The scholarship will be awarded based on student need, Nebraska beef industry involvement (past achievements and future plans) and academics.

NCF, also, offers numerous other $1,000 scholarships, awarded on the basis of academic achievement, beef industry involvement and goals/quality of application from memorial funds.


Established in 1968, the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation’s mission is to advance the future of Nebraska’s Beef industry by investing in research and education programs.  The Foundation’s success and its ability to endow scholarships, to sponsor leadership and education programs, assist with research and infrastructure projects has been possible only because of the support from the Nebraska cattle producers and allied industries.
