The goals of the Iowa Arborist Association are to foster an appreciation for the Iowa tree community,
to increase interest in planting and caring for shade and ornamental trees, to promote the science
and practice of professional arboriculture and to encourage public education.
The Iowa Arborist Association offers educational scholarships to assist students in fields related to professional tree care and maintenance.
The scholarship program includes two categories:
- College Scholarship, which provides funds for tuition and books.
- Conference Awards, which will provide funds for registration and hotel room costs for Iowa Arborist Association (IAA), Shade Tree Short Course, Midwestern International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) conferences or other educational conferences.
