The Acacia Leadership Scholarship is offered by The Acacians, a group of Iowa State University alumni who were members of the Acacia Fraternity at Iowa State during their undergraduate years. The Acacia Leadership Scholarship program was established in 1998 to recognize graduating high school seniors who have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills during their high school experience while also succeeding academically.
Each year, The Acacians award up to twenty $1,000 Acacia Leadership Scholarships to graduating high school senior males who also attend Iowa State University. To be eligible for this scholarship, the applicant must complete the application in its entirety and submit it by the application’s due date. Those selected as recipients of the Acacia Leadership Scholarship will receive the scholarship funds via the Iowa State University Financial Aid Office during their second semester of enrollment at Iowa State University.
The Acacia Leadership Scholarship is designed to identify and reward outstanding high school seniors who have demonstrated their ability to excel in the fields of academics, extra-curricular school activities, and community involvement. The scholarships are available to any male graduating senior from an accredited high school who attends Iowa State University. Demonstrated financial need is not a criteria. These scholarships are not transferrable to another person or for attendance at another university. The scholarships are awarded by The Acacians.
