About The Thomas H Lutsey Organic Agriculture Scholarships

The Thomas H. Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarship integrates a passion for agriculture, education and innovation, steeped in a legacy of three generations, dating back nearly 90 years.
A commitment to helping make college accessible and affordable for all families, paired with creativity and a love for farming makes the Thomas H. Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarship an important contributor to the future of Wisconsin agriculture. 
SUPPORTING THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE THROUGH EDUCATION
The Thomas H. Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarship is a four-year $10,000 scholarship for students pursuing an agriculture career that will benefit our rural Wisconsin communities.
Since its inception in 1986, the scholarship has awarded over $800,000 in gifts to more than 115 college students committed to advancing the field of agriculture in northeast Wisconsin.
Thomas H. Lutsey was a strong believer in hard work and diligence being essential to success. He wanted to help students who had a passion for agriculture and a dedication to furthering their education to advance their local community. He created the scholarship foundation to encourage students to work hard, advance their education and realize their goals.
"Ever have had an Eskimo Pie or any type of ice cream on a stick? Well, you might not know it, but you have Thomas H. Lutsey to thank for that. That’s my grandfather. He created the process and holds a lot of patents around the technology used still today to create ice cream novelties.
 
And he grew up on a dairy farm near Pulaski. He bottled milk and made ice cream and developed a company that became Gold Bond Ice Cream, which is now Good Humor-Breyers.
His son, Tom, carried the family tradition and established Waseda Farms—an organic farm in Door County. I now help run that farm and our Waseda Farms organization.
While my grandfather did not have an opportunity to go to college, he established the Thomas H. Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarship—which is a $10,000 scholarship awarded over four years—to help deserving students make college a reality. He also wanted to help support students who would become the future of advancing our rural communities.
Our family remains committed to farming, and this scholarship is one way that we hope to help Wisconsin agriculture remains strong.
We award Thomas H. Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarships each year—to students who are committed to returning to their home to help advance agriculture and rural communities of the future.
Since 1986, this scholarship has impacted over 115 students who have received over $800,000."
