Applications are now being accepted for Monsanto Hawaii's two scholarship programs - the Monsanto Hawaii Life Sciences Scholarship and the Monsanto Hawaii Agricultural Scholarship.
High school seniors are invited to apply for the Monsanto Hawaii Life Sciences Scholarship. As many as 10 scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded this year. This scholarship is open to graduating seniors of all high schools in Hawaii who will be attending an accredited college or university to pursue a discipline related to the life sciences (including agriculture, agronomy, biology, botany, genetics, horticulture, plant physiology, chemistry, crop science and soil science). The application deadline is April 1.
The Hawaii Agricultural Scholarship was established in 2011 to encourage interest in a career in agriculture. Applicants must have been accepted or currently enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited college or university other than the University of Hawaii-Manoa or Oregon State University; and be pursuing a degree in an agricultural science program or related discipline. The deadline for applications is May 1.
Students pursuing a degree in agricultural sciences at the UH-Manoa's College of Tropical Agriculture & Human Resources may apply for a separate Monsanto scholarship. Email Charles Kinoshita at KinoshitaC@CTAHR.hawaii.edu for information.
