Iowa Corn announced the student recipients of the Iowa Corn Future of Agriculture Scholarship program for the 2023-2024 school year. Iowa Corn awarded eighteen (18) $1,000 one-year scholarships to deserving, qualified students enrolled at an accredited U.S. 2-year or 4-year junior college or university, or graduate school, in a program of study equipping 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).
“Our industry’s success depends on our ability to offer relevant programming, advocacy and services to new leaders entering Iowa’s agricultural sector. Through the Future of Agriculture scholarships, we can offer some support for students regarding school tuition, educational supplies or student housing,” said Logan Lyon, a farmer from Muscatine County and chair of the Iowa Corn Grassroots Network, Membership & Checkoff (GNMC) Committee. “We are 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. It is a blind selection process by the committee. Students must also be an ICGA member or be a dependent of a member.
