Developing beef advocates and leaders for the cattle industry is the goal of the Collegiate Beef Advocacy Program (CBAP). Hosted by ANCW, the program provides an outlet for students to use their unique strengths to connect with consumers and peers to promote beef.
The collegiate advocacy program matches the vision and purpose of ANCW by ensuring the selected students strengthen their leadership and communication skills, establish career networks and enhance their knowledge of the industry. This experience will assist participants in furthering their passion for beef advocacy by providing top notch training, access to educational resources, and unique experiences.
The 2021 CBAP application has closed. The 2022 application will be available early fall.
