Kinsman International Award


  • Dr. Donald M. Kinsman was a long-time AMSA member whose work in meat science research and commitment to international opportunities for students set him apart from his peers. The objective of this program is to honor the memory and achievements of Dr. Kinsman and promote international collaboration by recognizing an outstanding student member with a financial award in support of international travel.


  • Eligible students must present verification of their plan to travel internationally with primary intent toward meat science education. Appropriate international activities involve the international travel of a student for the primary purpose of meat science education. (Examples include study, research, or internship opportunities, as well as attendance at meetings that are international for the student, such as ICoMST or RMC, for the purpose of presenting their research findings).

In recognition of Dr. Kinsman’s distinguished service in the armed forces, special consideration is given to applicants with military service records.
