This past holiday season saw an outpouring of support from the department for our 2nd annual silent and live auction. Dozens of items were donated by faculty, staff, and students ranging from beautiful handmade jewelry to wine tasting excursions; from cottage weekends in Algonquin to salsa lessons; from stunning artwork to book bundles. Not only were the donations extremely generous, but the bids displayed the true spirit of the season and the department.
The Dr. Erika Gaertner Scholarship was established to encourage young scientists passionate about botany. Selection will be based on the highest combined average of any two of the BOT courses. In the event of a tie, the three students with the highest average in the last academic semester will be selected. No application required.
