b'Launching aLEGACYIn an effort to enhance the future of agriculture, the IAA Foundation is pleased to award scholarships to the next generation of agriculture leaders. This is done on behalf of agriculture partners and families who wish to support and assure a well-qualified and professional agricultural workforce in Illinois while supporting farming communities. In 2018, the IAA Foundation awarded 84 students scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $7,500.These scholarships fund tuition, room and board and books.The IAA Foundations mission is to support Illinois farm families and the future of agriculture through education. As a supporter of the Foundation, you have the opportunity to live out that mission as well.By establishing a scholarship fund in the name of a family member, you are not only remembering a legacy of a life well lived, but also launching the legacy of a young agriculturalist. If you choose to create a scholarship, you may direct specific wishes as to the type of student who would be eligible to receive a scholarship. Living on an active family farm, being an active FFA or 4-H member, living in a certain county or region, or attending a specific university or community college are all examples of attributes that donor families have selected as being meaningful to them, or to the person they are honoring with a named scholarship. 10 Launching a Legacy|IAA Foundation Impact Report: A Legacy of Excellence'
