Two-year Scholarships Available for Underrepresented Minorities

We have a generous grant from the Hearst Foundation to support our new Regenerative Organic Agriculture track and increase the number of underrepresented minority students engaged in Environmental and Agricultural Science. Support from the Hearst Foundation allows us to offer a limited number of two-year scholarships for qualified students who choose the Regenerative Organic Agriculture track in Environmental Science. Scholarship awardees will receive $10,000/year for their first and second years of college. Continuation of the scholarship into the second year is contingent upon maintenance of good academic standing in the Environmental Science: Regenerative Organic Agriculture track.

To be considered for this scholarship, students must indicate underrepresented minority status in their application materials to Kutztown University. The Office of Admissions will forward the names and materials of qualifying students to the Environmental Science Program Committee for consideration.

Field Notes

KU Regenerative Agriculture Students take field notes and prepare invertebrate pitfall traps at our experimental farm. We have an 18-acre living laboratory where Environmental Science majors from all tracks are working to discover and develop the best local practices for rebuilding lost soil nutrients and carbon to combat the dual environmental challenges of food insecurity and global climate change.
