About E2020

The E2020 Scholars Program in the College of Engineering at Iowa State University provided scholarships to first-year and transfer students who demonstrated academic potential and financial need based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Scholarship award amounts totaled $2,500 per year, renewable up to four years, for a potential $10,000.

Through learning community programming, E2020 Scholars were introduced to the E2020 pillars:

E2020 Scholars addressed challenges like the following:

  • How do we provide clean water, universal access to information, health care, and robust economies for 9 1/2 billion people?
  • How do we restore our crumbling infrastructure? How do we sustain our agriculture and manufacturing?
  • How do we reverse global warming while developing nonpolluting, renewable energy sources?
  • How do we create sustainable systems in all parts of the world and produce quality food locally?
