Monsanto gives $100,000 to UH for scholarships

The world's biggest seed maker is donating $100,000 to the University of Hawaii at Manoa to set up a scholarship fund at the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources.

Monsanto Co. aims to support the education of students in plant sciences, including plant biotechnology and biological engineering.

The University of Hawaii Foundation said Thursday students may use their scholarship money to pay their tuition and fees and buy books and supplies.

The St. Louis-based company says it needs highly skilled, well-educated workers who are passionate about using science and technology to improve farming and address challenges like drought, malnutrition and hunger.
