JOHNSON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's Johnson State College is going to be offering $40,000 scholarships for students majoring in biology and environmental sciences.

The four-year scholarships are being supported by a $552,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.

To be eligible, applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0, demonstrated financial need and plan to study biology or environmental science at Johnson State.

Applications for the fall 2013 semester will be reviewed beginning March 1.

Scholarships are awarded as funds remain available.

The scholarship is one of several steps Johnson State is taking to support academically talented students of modest financial means who are committed to earning a college degree.
