Before the late Thomas H. Lutsey made his name as the inventor of still-popular ice cream treats in the mid-20th century, his life’s work as an innovator began as a child on his family’s farm in Pulaski, Wisconsin.

Lutsey’s agricultural and innovative legacy has continued over the past 37 years with the Thomas H. Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarship.

Since its inception in 1986, the Thomas H Lutsey-Waseda Farms Scholarship Program has awarded more than $865,000 in scholarship funds to 129 scholarship recipients.
“My grandfather would be very proud of the impact the grant program is having on dozens of communities in different regions of Wisconsin in supporting the future of agriculture through education,” said Matt Lutsey. “This new generation of farming enthusiasts has been tested in unimaginable ways as we have all grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years.
