The Iowa Professional Surveyors Foundation was established to provide financial assistance to students who are studying surveying or related fields. Each year, the Foundation awards several scholarships to applicants in the state of Iowa.

The Foundation is supported by SLSI but the funding comes from donations, proceeds from our annual auction held at the SLSI Annual Meeting and from sales of SLSI publications and apparel. No SLSI dues money goes directly to the Foundation. SLSI does purchase the inventory of publications and apparel with the proceeds going to the Foundation.

Donations Welcome

In order to be able to continue awarding scholarships, the Foundation needs the support of all Iowa surveyors and businesses which have an affiliation with the field of surveying. If you wish to donate to the Foundation, you may click on the link below to donate online or send a check to:
