“The support of the Winnebago-Boone Farm Bureau Foundation allowed me to choose a school based on the quality of program, not the cost. It guaranteed me a top-notch undergraduate education.  The scholarship also meant I could graduate from my undergrad and move on to accomplish my graduate school and career goals without the looming cloud of student debt repayment.”
