Agriculture Scholarships
Monsanto offers a variety of scholarships to recognize, reward and encourage students to continue their education in ag-related fields. Driven by the desire to actively support expanding development of future industry leaders, Monsanto seeks out exceptional students who have long-term career interests in agriculture. Over the past 10 years, we have donated close to $1.5 million in scholarships and awards to thousands of students.
