Application Guidelines

The International Livestock Congress USA, managed through a partnership of the ISEF and the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo™, is a unique global event that brings leaders from the livestock and meat industry together to discuss issues of international importance that affect the future of animal agriculture.  Students will participate in the event 

Feb. 28 - Mar. 1, 2018 in Houston, Texas.  Events will include a student career workshop, the International Livestock Congress USA, and tours of area plants, feedlots and ranches.

Fellowships include airfare, ground transportation, hotel and scheduled meals. Scholastic achievement, leadership experiences and professional references are all part of the stringent qualifying requirements for this fellowship.  

In an effort to enhance the educational experiences of college students and strengthen the leaders of tomorrow’s livestock and meat industry, the International Stockmen’s Educational Foundation awards travel fellowships each year for the International Livestock Congress to senior level undergraduates and graduate students attending accredited colleges or universities.
