Scholarship Endowment

PAES Establishes Scholarship Endowment

In 2014, the PAES Board looked to find options for ensuring the future of scholarships to those interested in the crops and soil sciences profession.  The answer came in the form of a Penn State University Trustee Scholarship Endowment.  With the support of the University, PAES committed to developing a scholarship program that would continue for years to come in the name of the supporters and members of the Pennsylvania Agronomic Education Society.

PAES has committed to raising $50,000 in five years to establish the PA Agronomic Education Society Trustee Scholarship, which when fully funded will provide three $2500 scholarships within the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences.
