Iowa Farm Bureau awards scholarships

Iowa

Agriculture is an important part of Iowa's overall economy and young people continue to see opportunity in ag-related studies as they plan for their future careers. The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation has awarded $1,000 scholarships for tuition to 180 students who plan to study agriculture at their chosen colleges and universities. The recipients are pursuing majors in a variety of ag-related disciplines, including agriculture business, engineering, education, technology and animal science.

In addition, Justin Menke of Donnellson in Lee County was named the recipient of the Daniel Johnson Memorial Scholarship, a one-time $500 award for a student from one of eleven counties in southeast Iowa: Keokuk, Washington, Louisa, Muscatine, Wapello, Jefferson, Henry, Des Moines, Davis, Van Buren and Lee. The scholarship is awarded in honor of Daniel Johnson, a former Iowa Farm Bureau director, farmer, volunteer firefighter and school board president.

"Iowa's high school and college students truly represent the future of agriculture and Farm Bureau is proud to support them and contribute to their success," said IFBF Community Resources Director Barb Lykins.

First-time Farm Bureau scholarship recipients include 54 graduating high school seniors or students currently enrolled in their chosen college or university. Students are eligible to renew the scholarships for up to four years by maintaining a minimum grade point average of 2.5 and by being a student in good standing with the college or university.

Six recipients were selected from each of the nine IFBF districts. Scholarships were awarded to children of Farm Bureau members who plan to or currently attend an accredited college, university or community college to earn two- or four-year degrees.

First-time applicants were asked to write an essay indicating the contributions they expect to make to agriculture or agribusiness. They also were selected based on their academic achievement, financial need, community and extracurricular involvement and letters of recommendation.
