Agriculture Business and Technology Institute Scholarship Program

The Agricultural Business & Technology Institute (ABTI) Scholarship Program, in collaboration with the Hartnell College Foundation and supporting industry partnerships, provides financial assistance to students pursuing an education in an ABTI area of study. The ABTI Scholarship program is focused on (1) recruiting new and re entry students interested in ABTI careers, (2) assisting at risk students who deserve the opportunity to demonstrate their potential, and (3) rewarding talented and engaged students who are continuing their education at Hartnell or transferring to a university in a program related to ABTI.

There are numerous scholarships within the ABTI Scholarships Program. Most scholarships are selected based on (1) the student’s chosen program of study, (2) the general eligibility requirements, and (3) the strength of the student’s application packet. A few awards have been designated as Special Achievement Scholarships. These are described below with the details of any additional eligibility requirements.
