The Agribusiness Association of Iowa Foundation annually hosts the Agribusiness Career Day for Iowa Community College students. Seating is limited to 250 students. Students must be registered by February 6 to be eligible for the scholarship drawing.
This special event has been created for ag majors enrolled at an Iowa Community College during the 2018 Spring Semester. Student attendees will enrich their knowledge of the agribusiness industry and have the opportunity to make valuable connections with representatives from over 100 agribusiness employers that will be exhibitors at the event.
In addition to the educational presentations and showcase floor experience outlined below, we will be awarding $1,000 scholarships to at least one student attendee from each of the fifteen Iowa Community Colleges. Student attendees will be eligible for one of the fifteen $1,000 scholarships; a minimum of fifteen scholarships will be awarded to at least one student per participating Iowa Community Colleges below. Students must be in attendance at the event to be eligible for a scholarship. Disbursement of the scholarship funds will be coordinated with the recipient’s community college by the AAI Foundation.
