Mattie cowan scholarship
The Arizona State Cowbelles are proud to offer a scholarship in the amount of $1,500 in memory of Mattie Cowan, our founder and first president of "The Cowbelles" in 1939, and later the first president of the Arizona State Cowbelles in 1947. "The Cowbelles" organization was the foundation for the Arizona State Cowbelles and later the National CowBelle Association which later changed its name to the American National CattleWomen. We are very proud that the primary source for these organizations began in Arizona, with its rich history in camaraderie, ranching and the beef cattle industry. This scholarship is offered to high school graduates who plan to pursue agriculture degrees in hopes that the knowledge learned from our past continues and grows into the future.
