Current Available Scholarships

The Iowa Professional Surveyors Foundation was incorporated in 1995 with the objective to, in part, provide financial assistance to students who are studying in land surveying, mapping or related fields.
We would like to invite students in the Civil Engineering Technology Program to apply for one of our annual scholarships.  The amount of each scholarship will likely be between $1,000 and $1,500, but the actual number of scholarships to be awarded in 2023 and the amount of each scholarship will be determined by our Board of Directors when they meet in late February to review applications.   In 2022, the Foundation awarded four scholarships of $1,500 each.
To apply, please complete and return the scholarship application with a college transcript of courses completed and grades received.  Additionally, we ask each applicant to write a personal letter explaining to the Board their individual circumstances, goals and why they wish to be considered for a scholarship.  These letters are considered very important for the Directors review and help to personalize the selection process.  In the past, the Directors have given greater weight to students in actual need who also indicate an interest or desire to pursue a land surveying or related career and who are achieving success in their coursework.
Scholarship applications, transcripts and letters must be submitted to David Scott, Executive Director of the Society of Land Surveyors of Iowa, at the above address and must be received there on or before Monday, February 13, 2023, in order to be considered.  Please allow ample time for delivery.
Scholarship recipients will be notified in early March 2023.
