Royal Scholars

The Royal Scholars program is designed to provide an opportunity for outstanding college students to advocate the food and fiber industry, leadership, and the American Royal. Royal Scholars will take part in the American Royal’s virtual Field Trips and will assist with the Junior Premium Livestock Auction in October.

In recognition of the outstanding achievements of the Royal Scholars and their continuing advocacy of the food and fiber industry, the American Royal Association will award a $2,500 scholarship to each student selected as a member of the program.
