Scholarship applications are now being accepted for Monsanto Hawaii’s two scholarship programs for high school seniors interested in obtaining a life science degree. The programs offered are the Monsanto Hawaii Life Sciences Scholarship and the Monsanto Hawaii Agricultural Scholarship.

Up to 10 scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded in 2016.

Monsanto Hawaii Life Sciences Scholarships are open to graduating seniors of all high schools in Hawai‘i who will be attending an accredited college or university to pursue a discipline related to the life sciences—agriculture, agronomy, biology, botany, genetics, horticulture, plant physiology, chemistry, crop science and soil science. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2016.

The Hawaii Agricultural Scholarship was established to encourage students interested in a career in agriculture. Applicants must have been accepted, or are currently enrolled, as a full-time student at an accredited college or university and pursuing a degree in an agricultural science program or related discipline—botany, genetics, horticulture, plant physiology, crop science or soil science. The deadline for applications is May 1.
