Iowa 4-H Foundation Recognizes 4-H’ers across the State
Over $100,000 in 2016 Iowa 4-H scholarships were awarded to 4-H members

Ames, Iowa –The Iowa 4-H Foundation has announced the recipients of over 70 Iowa 4-H college scholarships valued at over $100,000. Recipients will accept their awards on Sunday, June 4 at the Foundation’s Scholarship Reception held in the Scheman Building at Iowa State University. Over 500 applications were submitted. Award recipients hail from 48 counties across the state of Iowa with a wide variety of 4-H experiences.

Scholarship applications were evaluated based on the applicant’s 4-H participation, academic accomplishments, goals and future plans, financial need as well as other criteria established by the Iowa 4-H Foundation and the scholarship donors.

“We’re thrilled to be able to award over $100,000 in college scholarships this year to honor the hard work and dedication put forth by these 4-H’ers,” said Doug Den Adel, Iowa 4-H Foundation Board President. “These scholarship donors recognize the importance of higher education and remain committed to providing these opportunities for 4-H’ers. We are thankful for their continued support!”

This year, seven new scholarships were awarded. A $10,000 scholarship was provided by US Cellular in memory of Don Nebergall for 4-H’ers in Linn or Johnson counties going into a STEM field. Six scholarships were provided by the Iowa Bankers Association, one in each of their member areas.

In addition to the traditional scholarship program, the Iowa 4-H Foundation partners with Hills Bank and Trust Company to provide a unique opportunity; the Hills Bank Leadership Program Grant Awards. Each year, Hills Bank & Trust contributes $20,000 to the Iowa 4-H Foundation to award a $1,000 scholarship to 20 high school juniors. These students are selected to participate in the program, complete a year of leadership training and receive the scholarship upon graduation. More information about the Hills Bank and Trust Leadership Grant Program can be found here.

 A full list of all scholarship recipients can be found on the following page. Photos from the Scholarship Recognition Event are available here.

The Iowa 4-H Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides the private financial resources to develop and deliver quality 4-H youth programs throughout the state of Iowa. These opportunities help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication, and social skills – tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors.
