Qualified applicants must be Washington residents that are: high school seniors who will attend college or university, trade school or a student already enrolled in a degree program preferably pertaining to the beef cattle community, or students who may have a history in the beef cattle community. A committee chosen by the Washington Cattle Feeders Association will select the scholarship winners based on beef community background, academic merit, leadership, activities and personal accomplishments, and the demonstrated ability to contribute to the agricultural community. 

Completed applications are due by April 15, 2023. Candidates may be invited to an in-person interview. Each recipient will be asked to report on his or her activities or studies at a WCFA Board of Directors meeting or at the next annual conference. 

Announcement of the scholarship winners will be made in May, and a presentation will be made at the WCFA annual conference in July. Students are limited to receiving two (2) WCFA scholarships to ensure as many different students as possible may be awarded a WCFA Scholarship.
