Scholarship State: Iowa

Targeting Excellence formed an Iowa committee in 2015 making it the 4th state to join the organization.  The first Iowa fundraiser was held in 2015 and students scholarships have been awarded in the state since that time.

The 2017 scholarship awards included a total of $184,000 to students pursuing degrees in food animal production. Iowa specifically awarded $22,000 to students either from Iowa or attending schools in Iowa.  A special thanks to all who attended the Targeting Excellence events in 2016 as well as the 2016 sponsors for making it possible to award these scholarships.
