Hereford scholarship, award apps due April 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. ­­­- Hereford youth can vie for nearly $30,000 in scholarships each summer during the Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). Applications for this summer’s awards must be submitted by April 1.

Each year, the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) along with the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) and National Hereford Women (NHW) offer scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees in higher education. Hereford breeders, allied industry partners and friends trust HYFA with their generous gifts to make these scholarship awards possible.

This year’s scholarship recipients will be recognized during the 2016 JNHE, July 13 in Madison, Wis.

“I encourage our Hereford youth to apply for the HYFA scholarships,” says Amy Cowan, American Hereford Association director of youth and foundation. “Young people are the future of the Hereford breed, and Hereford breeders and other HYFA supporters continue to provide the resources needed to support our young leaders.”

Since 2000, more than $450,000 has been dispersed to Hereford youth by HYFA. April 1 is the deadline to submit scholarship applications along with Prospect and Junior Golden Bull awards that recognize Hereford youth in third grade through seniors in high school. Visit the Hereford Scholarship website,, to begin the process today.
