The Bioenergy Education Project is announcing the availability of $3000 scholarships for Master of Agriculture students in bioenergy-related fields. Both new and current M.Ag. students are eligible to apply. Funded by a grant from the USDA, the purpose of the scholarships is to encourage non-thesis Masters of Agriculture students to receive training in business and management as well as bioenergy, to enable them to enter the professional workforce in this growing area.

> The Master of Agriculture program requires students to take courses in three different areas (a major and two minor concentrations), two of which must be from the College of Agricultural Sciences or closely related areas. Students receiving the Bioenergy scholarship will be required to take 18 credits of a specified curriculum to earn a Graduate Certificate (GC) in Management for Science Professionals, for one of their minor concentrations. For their second minor concentration, students will choose 9 credits of coursework related to Bioenergy, to be approved by their major professor and committee. The M.Ag degree is non-thesis; students have done a variety of projects for their graduate supervisors.
