National Scholarship Awards to OSU Students
By: Imed Dami
Recently, two students in the OSU Viticulture and Enology Program have been awarded national scholarships. Lisa Robbins, PhD candidate (enology) and Thomas Todaro, MS candidate (viticulture) received national scholarships presented by the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) and ASEV-Eastern Section. These prestigious awards are competitive and only a few students are selected every year based on their excellent academic achievements and commitment to the grape and wine industry. Lisa (“The Effects of Hyperoxidation and Storage Temperatures on the Flavor Profiles and Sensory Quality of Riesling Wine”) and Thomas (“Cane Morphology Influences Bud and Cane Tissue Freezing Tolerance in Vitis vinifera Cabernet franc”) will present their research findings at the upcoming ASEV-ES conference to be held on July 18-22 in St. Louis, MO. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments. Congratulations!
