USDA Tribal Scholars Program Accepting Applications
Deadline: February 5, 2018

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) 1994 Tribal Scholars Program is an employment program that offers a combination of work experience and academic study leading to career positions within USDA. The program is designed to integrate classroom study with paid work experience.
The program is conducted in accordance with a planned schedule and a working agreement between USDA agencies, student, and the 1994 Tribal Colleges and Universities. The USDA 1994 Tribal Scholars Program is designed to strengthen the long-term partnership between USDA and the 1994 Land-Grant Institutions; to increase the number of students studying and graduating in food, agriculture, natural resources, and other related fields of study; and to develop the pool of scientists and professionals to annually fill 50,000 jobs in the food, agricultural, and natural resources system. 
The USDA 1994 Tribal Scholars Program will provide full tuition, paid internship, employee benefits, fees, books, and room and board each year for up to 4 years to selected students pursuing a degree at a 1994 tribal land-grant institution that culminates in bachelor's degree at a 1994 Tribal Land-Grant Institution or other University.
All USDA 1994 Tribal Scholars Program recipients are required to compete for appropriate employment immediately after graduation and, if selected, commit to at least one year of service at USDA for each year of financial assistance provided. (Note: Specific details of this service requirement will be outlined in the service agreement entered into by the selected Scholar, the University at which the Scholar is matriculated, and the USDA Sponsoring Agency.) 
All application materials must be postmarked or sent by Sunday, February 5, 2017. Make submissions via e-mail to 1994@osec.usda.gov OR send to:  Office of Advocacy and Outreach, USDA 1994 Tribal Scholars Program, US Department of Agriculture, 1400 Independence Ave., S.W., Washington, DC 20250-0603
