  Illinois Agri-Women Scholarships  
  Jennifer Waters  2/21/2020 10:00:00 AM  

Sent to all teachers on behalf of the Illinois Agri-Women. 

Scholarships for females studying agriculture are offered by the Illinois

Agri-Women.  The Illinois Agri-Women (IAW) organization supports the agriculture industry, works for legislation to support and preserve family farms, communicates with other agriculture organizations, and strives to educate the public and promote agricultural awareness.

A $1500 IAW Agriculture Education Scholarship is for an agriculture education major who is finishing the degree in the next year. 

Two $1000 WCFA Agent of Change Scholarships are offered to students who have attended at least one Women Changing the Face of Agriculture Conference.  One scholarship is for a high school senior and one for a current graduate student.

Twenty $1000 WCFA Agent of Change Scholarships are offered to current college students.  An anonymous foundation sponsor will provide matching scholarship funds for donations from 2020 WCFA new or current company sponsors.  The scholarships will encourage WCFA student participants to further their education in an agriculture, energy and food related career track; create a strong bond/mentor opportunity for students and company participants; and, potentially a job shadow experience. 

Students who wish to be considered for this scholarship should sign up to volunteer for WCFA and attend the professional development meeting the night before the WCFA event.  Current college students who attend both the March 5 IAW Professional Development Event and volunteer for the March 6, 2020 WCFA are eligible to apply.

Deadline for submission of an on-line application is March 31, 2020.  Find scholarship information and applications at or .
