    This year, the Department of Horticulture and Crop Science conducted virtual scholarship interviews with Sustainable Plant Systems majors. Our students were scattered across the state, country, and even internationally, after campus was closed during Spring semester. Short 10-15 minute zoom interviews were conducted in order to match students with scholarships that align with their studies. Scholarships varied across the horticulture, agronomy and turf science industries. Our virtual interviews showed the resilience and flexibility of our student body and we thank them!
