Blue Scholarship State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald reminds students the deadline to apply for a Robert D. Blue Scholarship is drawing near. Applications must be submitted online at RDBlue.org by May 10th in order to be eligible for this year's award. "Over the years we've helped hundreds of Iowa students meet their college costs with this scholarship," Fitzgerald stated. "Awards are based on financial need, academic achievements, written recommendations, and an original essay." In 2018, nine Iowa students received a $500 Robert D. Blue Scholarship. The Robert D. Blue Scholarship is awarded by the Iowa Centennial Memorial Foundation to honor Iowa students attending college in Iowa. The Foundation was created in 1949 to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of Iowa's acceptance into the union. Governor Blue wished to encourage the youth of the state to continue their education at one of Iowa's fine institutions of higher learning. Applications for the scholarship are only accepted online at RDBlue.org, and the winners will be announced during the summer. Those who would like more information on the Robert D.
