Crops society announces Pioneer Fellowship in Plant Sciences

A fellowship to encourage graduate study in plant sciences, with emphasis on plant breeding and genetics, has been announced by the Crop Science Society of America (CSSA). The announcement was made at its Annual Meetings, held in Indianapolis, IN, Nov. 10-14.

The Pioneer Fellowship in Plant Sciences has been created to attract top students whose careers will continue to advance the science of plant improvement. The fellowship is sponsored by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., and funded through the Agronomic Science Foundation (ASF). It will support four years of graduate study with a $25,000 annual stipend.

The first Pioneer Fellowship in Plant Sciences will be awarded in 2003 to a Ph.D. applicant with outstanding potential in plant sciences. Application information will be in the CSSA Awards Booklet, which is mailed to university departments and posted on the CSSA Web site (www.crops.org) in late December.

"Pioneer is committed to supporting education in plant sciences," said Dr. Todd Krone, Pioneer research coordinator. "The Pioneer Fellowship in Plant Sciences will help graduate students achieve their educational goals, and create the researchers and teachers of the future."

Dave Sleper, CSSA Past-President from the University of Missouri, will chair the initial committee.
