Source: Iowa Soybean Association news release

The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) is offering ten $1,500 scholarships to high school seniors who plan to pursue agricultural studies in college.

Scholarships will be awarded to one student in each of Iowa's nine crop districts and, from those recipients, one student will be selected to receive an additional $1,500.

Applications are due March 1 and winners will be announced April 15.

"It truly is an honor to recognize students who will bring agriculture into the next phase, whether that is through research, technology or joining the family farm after college," explains ISA President Brian Kemp who farms near Sibley. "As students see their education costs increase, we're proud to offer these scholarships to support students who see the opportunities in agriculture."

Many ISA Ag Scholarship Program recipients are working in a variety of ag-related careers, ranging from sales to research to association work.

Scholarship application forms are available at www.iasoybeans.com and all applications must include the following items:

An essay addressing "What role would you like to be playing in agriculture and/or the soybean industry in the five years following graduation?"

Three letters of recommendation.

Submit four copies of each document.

Additional details can be found at www.iasoybeans.com or by contacting Mary Whitcomb at 800-383-1423.
