Iowa Farm Bureau Scholarships 

The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) and many of its 100 county Farm Bureaus offer a variety of scholarships at the state (IFBF) and local level to future college students.  

The following are the various opportunities that are offered each academic year: 

IFBF State Scholarships – Up to $10,000 Per Recipient

IFBF awards 27 graduating high school students from Iowa (three from each of IFBF’s nine districts) a $2,500 scholarship, renewable for four years (up to $10,000 per recipient).
 Each of IFBF’s 100 county Farm Bureaus select one application from their county to be considered for IFBF’s state scholarship.
To qualify for the IFBF scholarship renewal, the recipient must continue to meet the scholarship requirements annually.

Local County Farm Bureau Scholarships

Many of Iowa’s 100 county Farm Bureaus have a local scholarship program. However, availability and scholarship amounts vary.

Endowed Scholarships

The following endowed scholarships are selected from eligible applicants:  

  • The Daniel Johnson Memorial Scholarship is a one-time $500 scholarship that is awarded to one student from IFBF District 7 (Davis, Des Moines, Henry, Jefferson, Keokuk, Lee, Louisa, Muscatine, Wapello, Washington and Van Buren counties) who is pursuing a degree in agriculture.

  • The Edward W. & Isabelle M. Klodt Memorial Scholarship is a one-time $500 scholarship that is awarded to one student from Wapello County.
