Targeting Excellence's goal is to unite agribusinesses, production systems, and institutions of higher education in a common cause - to ensure the world’s food supply by providing scholarships for students with a career path focused on food animal production.
Targeting Excellence scholarships will be supported by annual contribution and fund-raising events. Scholarships will reflect the interest of contributors and participants of the fundraising events.
Targeting Excellence events serve a purpose other than raising scholarship funds. The events will create an environment where students can learn more about career opportunities in food animal production and spend face-to-face time with leaders of our industry.
Students who are interested must be enrolled in an agricultural curriculum at an institution of higher learning that offers degrees in agriculture. Preference will be given to applicants with a desire to work in some aspect of food animal production.
