Student Scholarships

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”        – Unknown

The Iowa Soil and Water Conservation Society is offering two memorial scholarships, each $1,000 awards.

These scholarships are in memory of David L Schnur, Newman Lyle and Krsnak-Runyan-Ward.

These scholarships seek to provide financial aide to a student in need of economic assistance and pursing a career in soil and water conservation or natural resources.
