Four Geneva-based students have been awarded scholarships from the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV). Amanda Sims (Horticulture, Lakso Lab), Paola Barba (Plant Breeding, Reisch Lab), Charles Frohman (Food Science and Technology, Mira Lab), and Lindsay Jordan (Horticulture, Vanden Heuvel Lab) all received the prestigious honor.
Both Jordan and Frohman won additional honors; an American Wine Society Educational Foundation scholarship and an ASEV Eastern Section scholarship.
Jordan’s is for her research examining the use of annual cover crops in Finger Lakes vineyards to reduce vine vigor and improve Riesling wine quality.
“I’m thrilled with Lindsay’s sweep of the three major viticulture and enology scholarships,” says Justine Vanden Heuvel, assistant professor in the Department of Horticulture and Jordan’s advisor. “Her solid experience in the industry combined with her demonstrated strength in viticultural research made her the perfect candidate for these awards. It’s great to see that it’s not only the Graduate Field of Horticulture that’s wowed by her skills.”
