Athletic Talent Search
The Nationally-Ranked Iowa Women’s Rowing Team is seeking to invest in Iowa’s top female athlete(s) by dedicating as much as a full athletic scholarship to the 2019 Homegrown Hawkeyes Athletic Talent Search.
Homegrown Hawkeyes is a search for athletes who have never rowed but are driven to compete at the highest level of NCAA athletics and excited about the idea of transferring their athletic talents to a new sport at the collegiate level.
