The mission of the Multicultural Scholars Program is to recruit, educate, and graduate minorities, economically disadvantaged, and first generation students from agricultural science disciplines. The Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries serves as the conduit to increase the presence of under-served and under-represented individuals within forestry professions.
We equip multicultural scholars to formulate Real. Life. Solutions.
