Iowa 4-H Foundation Recognizes Select 4-H’ers
Over $100,000 in 2018 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 accepted their awards on Sunday, June 3 at the Foundation’s Scholarship Reception held in the Scheman Building at Iowa State University. Over 400 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.

“Iowa 4-H Foundation scholarships acknowledge the hard work and dedication of young people who have used their 4-H skills and experiences to ‘make the best better’ for others,” said Emily Saveraid, Executive Director of the Iowa 4-H Foundation. “We also are thankful for the many scholarship donors who fund these important opportunities for Iowa 4-H’ers.”

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.
