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 prompt that we provide, 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.

*If you do not include all of the documents that we require and/or answer the writing prompt we have provided, your application will not be reviewed.*
