It’s that time of year when high school seniors are thinking about college, and their parents are thinking about tuition payments. Whether you have a student in your family heading off to college, or already in college, the IAA Foundation has scores of scholarships available, according to Susan Moore, director of the IAA Foundation.
Those 71 scholarships are generally awarded to students who are majoring in an ag related field, or whose family has a connection to one of many farm organizations or businesses. Moore says there is an easy on-line application process.
That site again is IAAFOUNDATION.ORG The requirements vary for many of the available scholarships, but there is one on-line application and from there the foundation staff will match the applicant up with applicable scholarships. And remember to contact your county Farm Bureau. Many counties operate their own scholarship programs for students in their area.
