About The Iowa Targeting Excellence Committee

Targeting Excellence was founded in 2013 with the vision, “To unite agribusinesses, production systems, and institutions of higher education in a common cause – to ensure the world’s food supply by providing scholarships for students committed to food animal agriculture.”

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.
Targeting Excellence awarded $16,750 to students this year from the funds raised last year.  Help us increase the scholarship awards available for next year by making a one time or recurring donation today.
