Irrigation E3 Program

Exposure, Experience & Education for Students & Teachers

The application for the 2020 program will open in mid-May. 

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. Irrigation E3 learners and leaders will receive an education and travel award to the Irrigation Show and Education Week. They are annually selected based on an application process.

Check out the E3 video from the 2017 Irrigation Show and Education Conference in Orlando or the E3 video from the 2015 Irrigation Show and Education Conference in Long Beach. 

Irrigation E3 Learners

Students will receive a travel scholarship through an application process. View the 2020 learner criteria and requirements and how to apply.

Irrigation E3 Leaders

Faculty members can apply for a travel grant, based on availability, to become an Irrigation E3 leader. The process is similar to the Irrigation Association's Faculty Academy grant request and is based on an application process. See the 2020 E3 leader criteria and requirements and how to apply.

For some schools, the Irrigation Show dates coincide 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.
