Tulare County Cattlewomen are currently offering scholarships for academic achievement and leadership skills for Tulare County natives interested in ag and livestock

TULARE COUNTY – The Tulare County Cattlewomen are looking to sponsor Tulare County natives pursuing degrees or careers in agriculture and livestock through scholarships for academic and leadership skills.

The cattlewomen are offering the $1,500 Marian Guthrie Memorial scholarship, the $1,000 Dolores Fitterer Memorial Scholarship and two additional $1,000 scholarships to students planning to major in the field of agriculture, preferably with a livestock emphasis.

To qualify to apply for a scholarship, students must be currently attending college or junior college or have graduated from a high school in Tulare County. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply. Students must major in an agriculture field, and a livestock emphasis is highly preferred.

Since 1949, the cattlewomen have used their grassroots volunteer spirit to educate the world’s consumers about the beef industry. The cattlewomen members participate in the beef industry’s legislative process through their volunteer call to action phone tree and by partnering with the state, and national cattlemen and cattlewomen’s associations.

Those interested in applying for a scholarship can contact the scholarship committee or Judie Church at 559-359-3586. To be considered, applications must be postmarked no later than March 1.
