New scholarship opportunity for science and math students

Students studying science, math or computer science at Hesston College have a new scholarship option to pursue to help offset the cost of their education.

The Habegger-Harder Science/Math Scholarship will award one scholarship each year through a competitive application process to students who demonstrate high academic achievement and a passion for a major in science, math or computer science. Applications for the scholarship are due by January 31 for a March 1 decision. For an application, contact

A scholarship for science and math students was long envisioned by program faculty, and the Habegger-Harder Scholarship Fund was finally realized when a significant initiating amount was donated by the estate of the father of Environmental Biology faculty member Lorna Harder, who retired in 2014 after 25 years of service to the college. Contributions from math and science faculty members and other donors have also supported the fund.
