Irrigation E3 Program
Exposure, Experience & Education for Students & Teachers
2023 E3 program applications are closed. Applications for the 2024 E3 program will open in spring 2024.
The Irrigation Association has created a program that focuses on providing irrigation students (E3 learners) and faculty members (E3 leaders) with exposure, experience and education that revolves around the irrigation industry. We believe that the “three e’s” are the best way to actively engage the next generation of irrigators.
The Irrigation Association invites E3 winners to the annual Irrigation Show and Education Week. Irrigation E3 learners and leaders will receive an education and travel award to attend the 2023 Irrigation Show Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in San Antonio, Texas. Winners are selected annually based on an application process.
Winners will have the opportunity to take education classes, attend industry sessions, explore the trade show floor and spend time with the 2023 E3 program lead sponsor, The Toro Company.

Irrigation E3 Leaders
Faculty members can apply for an education and travel grant, based on availability, to become an Irrigation E3 leader. See the E3 leader criteria and requirements and how to apply.
For some schools, the Irrigation Show and Education Week coincides with final exams or the week prior to final exams; however, the E3 program schedule can be adjusted for students in these situations. Please contact the workforce development department (703.536.7080) with any questions or concerns.
