New Talon Internship Accepting Applications

Lizzy Schultz

AngusLogoBlack A new internship opportunity through The Angus Foundation and the Angus/Talon Youth Education Learning Program is seeking interns to pair with working registered-Angus ranches for a valuable, hands-on, eight week educational experience during the summer starting in 2017.

Applications for both Talon scholarship recipients and for host breeders are available now, and can be accessed here. Applications are due Sept. 15.

Cam Cooper,of Talon Ranch, was a staunch supporter of agriculture’s youth and the founder of the Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program Endowment Fund. A working Angus ranch will be paired by the endowment fund’s Advisory Committee with an interested college or graduate student, or even a recent graduate younger than 25, with preference given to students who have received a Talon scholarship.

“Cam’s vision for the Talon Youth Educational Learning Program was for it to be a holistic experience for students. They could come into the program as an undergraduate scholarship recipient — with the opportunity to continue through graduate school — and get real-world experience through this internship. She was a true champion for our Angus youth,” says Milford Jenkins, president of the Angus Foundation.
