Support the Department

The future of Plant Science is in your hands. Give back.

The Department of Plant Science has a tradition of excellence thanks to our ability to attract and retain top-notch graduate and undergraduate students. Scholarships, fellowships, and awards are an integral part of our ability to compete for outstanding scholars. Your support of undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships and awards helps ensure our continued success.

Talented graduate students are always in high demand. They are valuable assets in the lab, where they collaborate with faculty on critical research and serve as instructors and mentors to up-and-coming undergraduate students. Graduate fellowships and awards provide the financial support needed for these talented students to focus on their academic and research efforts and ultimately make an impact in their fields.

Undergraduate students benefit immensely from scholarships and awards. These ensure our students can have a true Penn State experience while lessening the potential financial burden, rewarding academic success, and allowing them to enhance their education through beneficial experiences like international study.
