The Iowa Poultry Association's mission is to actively raise confidence in the poultry community through leadership, support, advocacy and education. 

The Iowa Poultry & Egg Scholarship Foundation announces three scholarships for 2022. Created by the Iowa Egg Council and Iowa Poultry Association, the Foundation funds education and encourages young people to consider careers in the poultry and egg industry.

In 2022, one $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior, and two $1,500 scholarships will be awarded to a returning college student. One of the returning college student scholarships is named in honor of late Iowa Egg Council board member and egg industry leader Blair Van Zetten.

Students who are interested in pursuing a career in the egg and poultry industry and are enrolled in an agricultural area of study are encouraged to apply.
