NIFA Awards Over $19M in Scholarships for Undergraduates at 1890 Land-Grant Institutions The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) announced today an investment of over $19 million in 1890 Land-grant Institutions scholarships for undergraduate students to stimulate interest in food and agricultural careers.

“As we work to increase the talent pipeline for the agricultural innovation workforce and the next generation of agricultural scientists, we need the brightest minds from across all areas and cultures in our society to be represented,” said NIFA director Dr. Carrie Castille. “NIFA’s 1890 Scholarships Program helps us move closer to that goal by providing scholarships to support recruitment, engagement, retention, mentoring, and training of undergraduate students at 1890 Land-grant Institutions, the Historically Black Colleges and Universities that are partners in the U.S. Land-grant University System.”

These scholarships are intended to encourage outstanding students at 1890 Land-grant Institutions to pursue and complete baccalaureate degrees in food and agricultural sciences and related fields that would lead to a highly skilled food and agricultural systems workforce.
