In 2019, long-time program supporters, Dave and Jeanne Allbaugh, created The Job Foundation Scholarship to support program graduates at Hawkeye Community College, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa. The Allbaughs understand that access to higher education is one way to advance economically and break the cycle of generational poverty.
2021 graduate, Develle (DJ) Rambus, has been awarded The Job Foundation ISU Scholarship! After completing a summer internship at John Deere, DJ will attend Iowa State and study engineering.
