The Agribusiness Association of Iowa (AAI) has donated $100,000 to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for scholarships. The scholarships will be available to students enrolling at Iowa State and pursuing careers in agriculture. Students will be eligible for the scholarships beginning this fall and funds will be distributed over a five-year period. The AAI Scholarship Program will help recruitment efforts in the college and promote career opportunities in Iowa's agricultural industries. "The AAI scholarship program helps our college send a clear message to high school students that there are excellent opportunities in Iowa's agricultural industries and that our college is the best pathway to these career," says David Acker, associate dean for academic and global programs.
