Irrigation E3 Program

Exposure, Experience & Education for Students & Teachers

2024 E3 program applications are now open. The deadline to apply is Sept. 8.

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 recipients to the annual Irrigation Show and Education Week. Irrigation E3 learners and leaders will receive an education and travel award to attend the 2024 Irrigation Show Nov. 4-7 in Long Beach, California. Recipients are selected annually based on an application process.

E3 recipients will have the opportunity to take education classes, attend industry sessions, explore the trade show floor and spend time with the 2024 E3 program lead sponsor, The Toro Company
