Since its inception in 1995, the Scholarship Foundation has granted tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships to exceptional undergraduate students pursuing degrees in the Animal, Meat and Food Sciences. In 2014, the Foundation added a “Center of the Plate” recognition for students in Culinary Arts. The students of today will be the Meat Scientists and Industry Leaders of tomorrow.

The goal of the Foundation is to to create a self-perpetuating endowment that will fund scholarships well into the 21st Century.
