ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — College sophomores or juniors who understand the cattle business and have a passion for effective writing could be the next interns with the world’s leading beef brand.

Certified Angus Beef LLC offers paid positions for those who will be juniors or seniors during the internships from next summer into spring 2015. Students with a strong writing background majoring in agricultural journalism or animal science and communications may apply for the 10- to 12-week summer position or part-time school terms.

Specific dates will be determined to coincide with academic semesters and all internships are available for college credit. The fall position may be offered as renewable through spring, but depending on applicants, a separate spring internship may be offered. Interns can work from home or from the CAB Supply Development office at 1107 Hylton Heights in Manhattan.

Applications are due by Nov. 25 for the summer 2014 and school-year 2014-2015 positions. Apply online at http://corporate.certifiedangusbeef.com/recruiting by submitting a brief cover letter, resume and three writing samples.

CAB’s Colvin Scholarship Fund will award six or more scholarships in 2014 totaling at least $20,000. The funds will be split among five undergraduate scholarships — in the amounts of $5,000, $4,000, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 — and a $5,000 graduate-level scholarship.

College juniors and seniors who have shown commitment to the beef industry, either through coursework or activities, are encouraged to apply by the Dec. 6, deadline. Applications are evaluated on involvement, scholastic achievement, communication skills and reference letters.

The graduate-level scholarship will be awarded to a full-time master’s or doctorate student conducting research related to high-quality beef production. Applications for that award are due Jan. 10.
