College Scholarship Program

To date, The Ike Foundation® has awarded over $85,000 in college scholarships to qualifying high school students from across the country. These students have been involved or volunteered in fishing, outdoor activities, or conservation. They have gone on to pursue degrees ranging from Biology, Environmental Science, and Computer Engineering to Photography and Business Management.

Each year, The Ike Foundation poses a standard essay question for graduating High School seniors who are seeking financial assistance as they continue their education at a 2- or 4-year College/University. Along with an essay, applicants have to meet eligibility criteria.

The Ike Foundation Scholarship Program opens every November and has a deadline of the following April. Scholarship recipients are announced in May of their graduating year.

We are excited to announce that this year’s Scholarship Dinner will be held on Friday, January 26, 2024, at The Grove at Centerton. The scholarships that we are able to give out to the chosen graduating seniors are funded by our annual Scholarship Dinner.
