HCS awards $130,000 in scholarships with virtual interviews

April 13, 2020

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!

Awards across all specializations within the Sustainable Plant System major were made from the twenty-four scholarship endowments.  Thank you to our generous donors, who make it possible for our students to succeed with their educational goals.
