2015 Jones County SWCD Scholarship Winner
Cale Gent

Each year the Conservation Districts of Iowa (CDI) sponsors a scholarship program. The scholarships are presented to Iowa high school seniors to be used for their first year of education on the college level while pursuing programs of study in any field of agriculture or natural resources.
 
Keep in mind that this is a broad field- A marine biologist is just as qualified to apply as someone wanting to pursue animal science. One never knows where an education might take our future leaders!
 
Please note that the scholarship application and guidelines are online, click here, where students can completely fill out their application before printing. High school seniors must have their applications in Jones Soil and Water Conservation District office no later than February 15th of the year they are graduating.
 
Jones SWCD is offering one $300 scholarship. CDI offers from $300 up to a maximum of $1800 for a state wide winner.
