In 1982 David Cornell approached Dr David Hawkins of Michigan State University and asked if a scholarship award similar to the Illinois Scholarship could be made for the winning Herdsman at the National Heifer Show and Paraders Competition.  

With this everything was set for the 1983 National Heifer Show and Paraders Competition, with the winner of the National Junior Herdsman’s title at the contest to receive the Michigan State University Scholarship.

This scholarship was last awarded in 2012 and was replaced by the Kansas State University Scholarship.
