Iowa Youth Institute Campus Visit Experience

Iowa Youth Institute Campus Visit Experience

Are you a participant in the World Food Prize Foundation Iowa Youth Institute (IYI)? Do you have a passion for fighting hunger around the world? You are invited to a special campus visit day, Monday, April 25, 2022 to see how you can turn those passions into a major at Iowa State University.

Registration is closed.

You’ll have the chance to learn generally about Iowa State University’s impact around the world and speak to an academic advisor in a major you are interested in. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with IYI alumni who are current students on campus, staff from the World Food Prize Foundation, as well as fellow future hunger fighters.

At the end of the day, you will get to use the things you learned to solve a world hunger problem in a group activity and then share those ideas with others.
