The purpose of the Multicultural Scholars Grants Program (MSP) is to meet national and international needs for training food and agricultural scientists and professionals. The MSP seeks to 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 that have (1) a demonstrable capacity to carry out the teaching of the food and agricultural sciences, and (2) unique capabilities for achieving representation of diverse cultural groups in the fields of agriculture, natural resources, forestry, veterinary medicine, home economics, or closely allied disciplines. The scholarships are intended to encourage outstanding students from racial and ethnic groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the food and agricultural sciences to pursue and complete baccalaureate degrees in these fields.
