The Iowa Poultry & Egg Scholarship Foundation announces three scholarships for 2022. Created by the Iowa Egg Council and Iowa Poultry Association, the Foundation funds education and encourages young people to consider careers in the poultry and egg industry.
In 2022, one $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior, and two $1,500 scholarships will be awarded to a returning college student. One of the returning college student scholarships is named in honor of late Iowa Egg Council board member and egg industry leader Blair Van Zetten.
Applications can be obtained by emailing Kevin Stiles at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are accepted through February 20, 2022 and scholarship recipients will be announced by April 1, 2022.
