Discovery that Connects

From fundamental insights to better plants, sustainably grown, serving the world

Geneva Summer Scholars enrolled in ‘Borlaug’s Army’

-David Gadoury

Thirteen of the 21 new undergraduate members of the American Phytopathological Society (APS) pose with former APS President George Abawi and Internal Communications Officer David Gadoury.  The students are part of the Geneva Summer Scholars program, and were enrolled in APS through the Borlaug’s Army Initiative, which provides a free one-year membership in the society to all undergraduates engaged in REU, internship, or work experience programs.

If past experience is a guide, we’ll be seeing these students again in our graduate programs both at Cornell, and at peer institutions in the near future.  Investments at Cornell and elsewhere in promotion of internships and careers, and engagement in scientific societies has been largely responsible for a 40% increase in plant pathology advanced degree participants at the national level over the last 10 years.
