Establishing a scholarship through the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation can be extremely rewarding because of the direct impact it has on young men and women during their formative high school and college years. Through scholarships, donors can memorialize loved ones or even their own experiences within the Simmental breed. These scholarships and who or what they represent will forever be a part of future Agriculture generations. Donors can establish a scholarship that benefits particular students or groups of individuals. We invite your earnest consideration of this effective and personal means of support. The benefits of creating a scholarship can last a lifetime, for both the donor and for the scholarship recipients.
Often donors will tailor their scholarships to suit their personal interests and passions. By working with the FCSF Board of Directors, donors can support students for their academic achievement, or support students who otherwise would not be able to attend a college or university.
Expendable fund: A scholarship without an endowed account may establish an independent expendable account for scholarship awards. A scholarship account is created and contributions are deposited to that account. Distributions are made from the account in accordance with criteria established by the donor and approved by the FCSF Board of Directors. The scholarship will be awarded each year until the fund is depleted.
Endowed scholarship: A minimum contribution perpetually funds an endowed scholarship. The amont eligible for this fund to be discussed between the board of directors and the donator.
With both expendable and endowed scholarships, the donor names the fund and establishes the selection criteria within the parameters already set-forth by the FCSF
Regardless of how you choose to fund a scholarship, you will be richly rewarded with the knowledge that your support helped make it possible for a young man or woman to attend college or university.
