Iowa Scholarships Available to High School Seniors

High school seniors in Iowa can apply for a scholarship through the Soil and Water Conservation District. Seniors looking at a career in agriculture or natural resources may apply for one of three scholarship awards.
Each senior should apply at their local Soil and Water Conservation District office with this application. Each county will choose a winner for nomination. The CDI Auxiliary President will then choose recipients for the $1,000, $1,200 or $1,800 scholarships.
All interested applicants must complete the designated application. Once completed students must submit by March 11, 2011. Winners will be announced in April or May.
Benton County applicants can also apply for the Benton County Soil and Water Conservation District Commissioners Scholarship. Applicants are available at the Soil, Water and Conservation District Office in Venton for students entering two- or four-year programs. Applications are due March 1, 2011 to the Benton County office. For more information contact 319.476.2161, extension A.
