Our Scholarships and Mission Statement

The Miss Iowa Scholarship Program's mission is to provide scholarship awards within a competitive system designed to enhance educational and career opportunities for young women.  While encouraging young women to serve as positive role models through service and personal development, the Miss Iowa Scholarship Program provides exposure to experiences that personal confidence, showcase talents, and serve the community.

EDUCATION is our goal!

The Miss Iowa Scholarship Program is a non-profit organization solely dependent on grants and contributions from businesses, organizations, individuals, and special event fundraisers, to support the scholarship awards and operation expenses of the Miss Iowa program. Your contributions play a vital role as we continue to offer college scholarships to some of the most outstanding young women of Iowa. Thank YOU for contributing to our success.
