Robert D Blue Scholarship

Young people today face many challenges as they begin their search for colleges. The rising cost of tuition is an additional challenge. Our goal is to provide financial assistance to Iowa students who deserve to be recognized. The Robert D. Blue Scholarship awards students who demonstrate literary and scholastic ability; exhibit qualities of truth, courage, and fellowship; and display moral force of character.


This scholarship's funding comes from the Iowa Centennial Memorial Foundation's interest earnings; thus, the number and amounts of scholarships awarded vary from year to year. These amounts awarded have varied from $500 to $1000.

Applicants must be an Iowa resident planning to attend an Iowa college/university during the upcoming school year. The applicant can be a current high school senior or someone already enrolled in a college/university.
