You may have a tremendous opportunity...the opportunity of higher education.

The Hixson Opportunity Award is a half-tuition grant (estimated value of more than $17,000 over eight semesters) to be used at Iowa State University. One hundred high school seniors from across Iowa will receive the award each year. Ideally, recipients will represent each county in the state. If you are a high school senior who demonstrates potential in ways that go beyond class rankings and test scores, you may wish to apply.
