  • Scholarship Description
  • The Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award is a $5,000 scholarship program for Iowa high school juniors.

    Iowa high school juniors propose a project they wish to accomplish. Grades, test scores, essays, and financial need are not evaluated. Students are chosen for the program on the strength of their project proposals. Up to 15 students are chosen per year. They must come to West Branch for a weekend in June and return in the fall of their senior year to make a presentation about their work. Each student then receives a check for $1,000 for having participated in the program.

    In October, a selection committee of accomplished Iowans listens to all presentations. At the end of the day that committee selects three students to win $5,000 scholarships.

    The scholarships are paid out $2,500 the freshman year and $2,500 the sophomore year to the two or four year college/university of their choice. There is no grade requirement to receive the second check. Checks are mailed directly to the college/university. Students have five years from the date of high school graduation to use the scholarship.

    For more information, please visit the Hoover Association website.
