Since the MAB program started in 1998, more than 50 Master of Agribusiness students have been awarded scholarships. It is through gifts donated by MAB alumni and supporters, some MAB students are able to continue their education and add to the growing diversity of the Master of Agribusiness program. Scholarships allow us to attract students who otherwise may not be able to enter the program due to financial reasons, including individuals from throughout the United States and international students. The diversity that these students bring to the program benefits all participants.
How you can help: Contribute to MAB scholarships to help others with financial need gain access to the benefits of the MAB program. Nearly 40% of students who enter the program have little or no financial assistance especially international and self-funded students. Scholarships enable us to attract students, especially international students who otherwise would not enter the program due to financial reasons. There are two different scholarships that are currently available.
Agribusiness Masters Scholarship (O01137) - Awarded annually to a student based on scholarship and financial need.
Master in Agribusiness Alumni Producer Scholarship (O031490) - Awarded annually to a student in production agriculture based on scholarship and financial need.
