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.

NSF – Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM)

NSF 12-529

NSF Full Proposal Deadline: August 13, 2013

This program makes grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for academically talented students demonstrating financial need, enabling them to enter the STEM workforce or STEM graduate school following completion of an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate-level degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics disciplines. Grantee institutions are responsible for selecting scholarship recipients, reporting demographic information about student scholars, and managing the S-STEM project at the institution.

Each college needs to screen the pre-proposals within their unit. The Dean will determine the proposal to be sent to the Office of Sponsored Programs and to represent Oregon State University for submission to NSF.

NSF – Limit on Number of Proposals per Organization:

1.     An institution may submit one proposal from each constituent college or school that awards eligible degrees. (For example, a university with a College of Engineering, a School of Life Sciences, and a College of Arts and Sciences could submit on proposal from each for a total of three. However, within a College of Engineering, if the Department of Electrical Engineering were submitting a proposal, a proposal from the Department of Mechanical Engineering could be submitted only in a subsequent year. The two departments could also submit a proposal jointly.)

2.     An institution without constituent schools (for example, a 4-year college or a community college) may submit one proposal each year.

3.     An institution that is part of a larger system is considered separate for this purpose if it is geographically separate and has its own chief academic officer.
