Hence Monsanto Company is pleased to offer Monsanto Graduate Student Scholarship Program. Monsanto is committed to recognizing high-achieving underrepresented students pursuing degrees in agriculture and STEM-related fields through their scholarship program. Upto $25,000 scholarship award will be given to the winning candidates.
