The Outstanding Graduate Student Award is to recognize the efforts and accomplishments of a graduate student toward completing course work, research, professional development, and other departmental service activities in his or her time at Iowa State University. It is presented by the Agronomy Graduate Student Club.
The Brown Graduate Fellowship has been awarded to two Agronomy Graduate students, Qi Mu and Mauricio Tejera. The Brown Graduate Fellowship is to be used to strategically advance ISU research in the areas of study that are governed by the Valentine Hammes Family and Leopold Hammes Brown Family Trust. The areas of study include science, agriculture, and space science. The preference is to fund Ph.D. students, although exceptional M.S. students will be considered.
