Higher Education Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP)

Communities that are under-represented in the agricultural sciences have many talented students. They only need a little support to reach their potential.

General Information

Colleges and Universities can use this funding to support undergraduate scholarships that increase the multicultural diversity of the food and agricultural scientific and professional workforce, and advance the educational achievement of all Americans by providing competitive grants to colleges and universities. The Multicultural Scholars Program is available every year.

The program is open to Land Grants, colleges and universities with significant minority enrollments that provide education in the food and agricultural sciences.  

Research foundations maintained by an eligible college or university are also eligible to submit undergraduate and/or D.V.M. training proposals.

Students attending two-year colleges that are legally authorized to offer a two-year or equivalent program of college-level studies which are principally creditable toward a baccalaureate degree, may be awarded a MSP Scholarship from eligible baccalaureate institutions in cases where an articulation agreement, bridging agreement, or other type of collaborative arrangement exists between the subject baccalaureate-level institution(s) and the two year college.
