Modesto Junior College is offering 20 scholarships of $3,500 each to high school seniors planning to enroll in a full-time agricultural science program.
Scholarship applications are being accepted for the 2010-11 academic year until March 15.
Special attention will be given to under-represented populations and students interested in careers in agriculture.

These Science, Technology, Engineering and Math scholarships, made possible through a grant from the National Science Foundation, are awarded for one full year, and are renewable for an additional $3,500 for a second year.
After successful completion of a two-year program, these STEM scholars will be eligible to apply for a transfer scholarship to continue studies toward an agricultural degree at a four-year college.
