The Endowment Fund Committee of the faculty of agricultural and food sciences is once again seeking proposals from alumni, students, and academic and support staff of the faculty for special projects requiring funding.
The Endowment Fund has raised over $1.3 million to date. The interest generated by this fund is used to provide teaching and other resources for the faculty. This year, $75,000 is available to fund a variety of faculty-directed projects, from teaching and research projects to extension and student recruitment activities. The fund has also been allocated for scholarships, visiting scientists and lecturers, field trips, and library acquisitions.
