The Scholarship Program will:
1. Provide meaningful financial support for the education of worthy scholarship candidates.
2. Benefit the business community through better educated people.
3. Expose scholarship candidates to the ever-expanding irrigation industry.
4. Strengthen the Foundation through a direct link to education today.

The Irrigation Foundation Scholarships will be awarded based on student's letter of intent, financial need, reference letters, resume and list of irrigation courses in amounts ranging from $1,000 – $2,500.
