ANKENY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa high school seniors with plans to pursue agricultural studies in college have a chance at some scholarship money.

The Iowa Soybean Association is offering 10 scholarships worth $1,500 each.

A student in each of the state’s nine crop districts will be awarded a scholarship. Officials will then select one student from that winning group for an additional $1,500 prize.

Applications, which include an essay and recommendation letters, are due March 1. The winners will be announced April 15.

The association says scholarship recipients work in agriculture careers that range from sales to research.
