The AAI Foundation currently offers two scholarships annually and an environmental stewardship award.
Winton Etchen Scholarship
The goal of this scholarship is to identify and recognize outstanding students who plan careers in agriculture and/or a related field. Winton Etchen was the executive director of the Iowa Fertilizer and Chemical Association from 1964-1988.
The Robert L. Skinner Endowed Scholarship
Robert Skinner was the Executive Director of the Iowa Grain and Feed Association from 1957 to 1988. His longstanding commitment to the industry is the basis for this scholarship being offered by the Agribusiness Association of Iowa.
The Chris Murray Stewardship Award
The agribusiness industry is committed to supporting stewardship projects that seek to improve and assure responsible environmental stewardship. Chris Murray served AAI for many years on the board of directors and as President, prior to actually joining AAI as a vice president in 1998. This award was established in memory of Chris Murray and his dedication to protecting the environment.
