High school seniors interested in a life sciences degree 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.

Application deadline is April 1.

The Hawaii Agricultural Scholarship was established in 2011 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 other than the University of Hawaii at Manoa or Oregon State University and pursuing a degree in an agricultural science program or related discipline, such as botany, genetics, horticulture, plant physiology, crop science or soil science.

The deadline for applications is May 1.
