2022 Scholarships and Awards Virtual Celebration


Welcome to the College of Agricultural Sciences 2022 Scholarships and Awards Virtual Celebration! We were thrilled to be back at The Penn Stater Conference Center this year on Tuesday, November 15, but we are glad to be able to provide a virtual option for those who could not attend in-person. We are so excited you have the opportunity to hear from our students and that we can take the time to recognize the positive impact you have made on the college via this virtual format. Thank you for your generosity and support and for making the College of Agricultural Sciences a philanthropic priority.

Thank you!

Thank you for taking the time to view the videos from Dean Roush and our outstanding undergraduate and graduate student keynote speakers. As you can see, the scholarships and awards you have so generously created and support make a difference in the lives of students in the Ag Sciences. The students featured in the videos above are just a small representation of the nearly 1,000 students who benefited from scholarships this year. However, we hope hearing directly from these students made it clear how vital scholarship support is and the immense impact your generosity is having on the students and their college experiences.

The College of Agricultural Sciences scholarships and awards program is one of the largest at Penn State. We are proud of the program and what it offers so many deserving students, but there is always more we can do to ensure our current and future students can pursue their academic and professional goals without the financial burden a college education sometimes brings.

We hope our students left you feeling inspired and confident that your gifts are making a positive impact. We hope to continue to provide more students with the financial support they need to have a true Penn State experience. Consider contributing to the college's General Scholarship Fund, or if you have already created a scholarship or award, additional gifts serve to bolster its value and will allow you to help even more students. The college's Development Team is here to help you create a lasting legacy of which you can be proud.
