USDA Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement is accepting applications for the USDA 1994 Tribal Scholars Program. This program aims to increase the number of tribal college and university students studying agriculture, food, natural resource sciences, and other agriculture-related disciplines. The program provides full tuition, fees, books, and workforce training to students. When the student has completed the academic and summer work requirements of the scholarship, USDA may convert the student to a permanent employee without further competition. The USDA 1994 Tribal Scholars Program is available to high school seniors entering their freshman year of college, and current college freshmen, sophomores, or juniors. General requirements include U.S. citizenship, a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and acceptance to, or currently attending, a 1994 institution to study agriculture, food, and natural resources.
