The Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP), funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), offers scholarships to undergraduate students from groups underrepresented in agriculture and first-generation college students interested in Agriculture, Natural Resources, Food Science, or Human Health and Nutrition. To date, 27 BioResource Research (BRR) students have been awarded these prestigious scholarships.

MSP Scholars receive generous tuition scholarships for up to a four-year period. They pursue a B.S. degree in BRR, and participate in MANRRS (Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences) or SACNAS (Society for Advancing Chicanos and Native Americans in Science).
