Cass County ISU Alumni Scholarship
Continuous Since 1982
The Cass County ISU Scholarship was created in 1982. Funding for the scholarship was by contributions from Iowa State Alumni residing in Cass County. Fund drives were held annually while scholarships were awarded each year from the beginning. Additional funds were added in 2010 when the family of Wayne Rodgers, an Iowa State University Alumus, transferred his memorial fund to the Alumni Scholarship Fund. All of the funds for this scholarship are invested in the Iowa State University Foundation.
This scholarship of $1,000 is awarded annually to one high school graduating senior who either resides in Cass County, or is graduating from one of the high schools in Cass County.

Selection of recipients for this scholarship is based on the following criteria; scholarship record, ACT test scores, difficulty of curriculum, school, church and community activities with emphasis on leadership, essay on career plans, and financial need. A committee of ISU Alumni select each year's recipient.
