    If your post is a representation of your writing style, I doubt you will receive many scholarships.

    That said, look at a few schools that are doing research you are interested in. If your degree is in agriculture, perhaps look for an area within physics that has an application to agriculture. Leverage your experience in your application to make yourself a better candidate.
    Where there's a will, there's a way. Persistence and flexibility are the keys to finding funding.

    You might want to check out this thread:

    Doing well on the GRE is not a substitute for an education in physics. Graduate programs will consider you if you've come through a program that is at arm's length from a physics program and has included most of the core educational components. These are programs like: engineering physics, physical chemistry, astronomy etc. You also might be competitive from a program like electrical engineering or applied mathematics with appropriate coursework.

    Typical agriculture degrees don't contain enough physics to be seriously considered.
