With the rising expense of a college education, many students are seeking out scholarships to help pay for books, classes, and other expenses. The IAA Foundation and Illinois Farm Bureau is doing their part to help students seeking an agriculture related education by offering college scholarships for high school seniors accepted for enrollment, or students already enrolled at an accredited college. Susan Moore, Director of the IAA Foundation shared what the IAA’s goal is with the scholarships.
Moore said there are plenty of scholarships available for Ag students through the IAA Foundation.
Moore gave a picture of the typical student that is awarded a scholarship through the IAA Foundation.
A full listing of the available scholarships, eligibility guidelines, and application documents are available at the Foundation website at iaafoundation.org. Completed applications must be submitted online by February 1st, and for more information contact your county Farm Bureau, or the IAA Foundation.
