The Branstad-Reynolds Scholarship Fund

The Branstad-Reynolds Scholarship Fund is sponsoring the Inaugural Ceremonies and Ball. The Governor and Lt. Governor wish to spotlight education and honor our Iowa service members. Net proceeds from the 2015 Inaugural will be used to endow scholarships for outstanding Iowa high school and college students. These scholarships will be awarded annually in the areas of agriculture, medicine, health, history and arts, and to children of fallen service members.
