Triple A Ranch Scholarship
The Triple A Ranch Scholarship is open to students from the greater St. Louis region who are considered first generation college students and who demonstrate financial need as a full-time undergraduate student at a regionally accredited two or four-year college or university.
The Triple A Ranch Scholarship program was established by William S. Anheuser shortly before his death at age 98 to provide financial support and a vote of confidence to area students who are working to improve themselves and their community through advanced education. The name of the scholarship recalls Mr. Anheuser’s ranch in south central Missouri where he raised prized Aberdeen-Angus cattle and learned a great deal about life and the value of hard work.
