Iowa Corn Announces Future of Agriculture Scholarship Recipients

March 30, 2022

Iowa Corn announced the 18 student recipients of the Iowa Corn Future of Agriculture Scholarship program for the 2021-2022 school year. Iowa Corn awarded the eighteen (18) $1,000 one-year scholarships to deserving, qualified students enrolled at an accredited U.S. 2-year or 4-year junior college, college or university, or graduate school, in a program of study to equip them to contribute to Iowa’s agriculture industry. The program is sponsored by the Iowa Corn Growers Association® (ICGA) and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board® (ICPB). 

“At Iowa Corn, we are passionate about supporting and growing current and future leaders. Our success depends on our ability to developing young leaders entering Iowa’s agricultural sector,” said Adam Bierbaum, a farmer from Griswold, Iowa and chair of the Iowa Corn Grassroots Network, Membership & Checkoff Committee. “Iowa Corn is excited for the future of agriculture in Iowa with this group of recipients leading the way.” 

Selection committees evaluated applications by their essays, applications, reference letters, current grades, and activities. They also must be an Iowa Corn Growers Association member or be a dependent of a member.
