This year, the Illinois Agri-Women (IAW) organization is offering 5 scholarships for females studying
agriculture. 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.

One $1,500 IAW Helen Henert Agriculture Education Scholarship will be offered to a student who is
an agriculture education major who will be finishing their undergraduate degree at an Illinois school in
the next year.

Four $1,000 WCFA Agent of Change Scholarships are offered to students who have attended at least
one Women Changing the Face of Agriculture Conference. Eligible applicants include past WCFA
attendees and students who participated in the 2021 WCFA Online Curriculum. One scholarship will
be awarded to a high school senior, one will be awarded to a current college student, one scholarship
will be awarded to a current graduate student, and one additional scholarship, in memory of Joan Loeb,
will be awarded to a student who will be enrolled in an Illinois college or university in the fall of 2024.

Applications can be submitted online. The deadline for submissions of completed applications is
March 31, 2024. To access applications or find out more information about scholarships, visit
