Welcome!

Welcome to Education Empowers, the new agency blog for the Iowa College Student Aid Commission! Here you will find updates and news as it relates to Iowa College Aid, state scholarships and grants, I Have A Plan Iowa® and GEAR UP Iowa. Be sure to check out the calendar feature which displays upcoming scholarships and grants deadlines, ACT and SAT® test dates, I Have A Plan Iowa® webinars and trainings, College Application Campaign events and much more! Every Wednesday will feature a new blog posting, starting next week on October 16. We will no longer be hosting the I Happenings blog, as all updates regarding I Have A Plan Iowa® will now be available on Education Empowers.

The name Education Empowers encompasses the vision of Iowa College Aid, that all Iowans can achieve an education beyond high school. This blog will serve as a resource to students, their families and educators from grade school to college and beyond. We encourage everyone to continue their education throughout their entire lifetime:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

-Nelson Mandela
