Scholarship Description

In March of 2007, Siemens Corporation generously offered to contribute $5,000 towards a brand new scholarship program.  The MISA Foundation agreed to match the donation with an additional $5,000 to create one $10,000 scholarship.  The three $5000 scholarships are awarded to outstanding students in the meat sciences field, while the $10,000 scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding undergraduate (junior/senior level) or graduate student pursuing a degree in the engineering or meat sciences fields.
