The Student Leadership and Professional Development Fund will support individual students and student groups from the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences needing financial assistance to participate in or attend academic and professional conferences and competitions. Your gift to this fund will help students in their developmental pursuits through networking, speaking and academic- and industry-related learning opportunities.
The college receives multiple requests annually from students and student groups for financial support, often to cover registration fees and travel expenses. Many of these students are selected to present and/or compete at the state and national level, but don't have the resources to cover the cost. Applicant requests are reviewed by College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Dean's Office staff and are awarded based on need and funding availability.
