Paid • Closes Dec. 1
Student applications for the prestigious Angus/Talon Youth Educational Internship are due December 1, 2023 for the summer and fall 2024 internship offerings. The program is funded by the Angus/Talon Youth Education Learning Program Endowment Fund, a donation of the late Camron "Cam" Cooper of Talon Ranch, to ensure educational learning experiences for youth. This program pairs Angus farms and ranches with outstanding college students. Interns receive compensation through the endowment and are mentored by their farm or ranch host for a life and career-transforming experience. While each intern’s activities will depend on the operation they are paired with, they will gain a hands on education about farm and ranch management spanning all aspects of the cattle industry - operations, breeding, business decisions, and more. Many interns choose to earn academic credit for their internship and fall interns have the opportunity to take classes while they participate in their internship. Selection of intern/host pairings is highly competitive and determined by a committee with a sharp focus on expected outcomes, ensuring the right student with the right host for the right fit. Additional information, including the application, is available on the Angus Foundation website.
