The APS Office of Private Sector Relations (​OPSR), with support from APS Foundation, sponsors Plant Pathology Experiential scholarships to promote career and research development experience and opportunities​ with organizations classified within industry and/or government. This initiative was created in 2014 with seed funding from the Don and Judy Mathre Education Endowment and through the support of private sector companies. 

  • One grant totaling $1,000 will be given on an annual basis to an individual graduate student or post-doctorate for funding in support of a short-term experience with a government or private organization to subsidize travel to the host organization​. 
  • An additional $4,000 for travel subsidy will be given every two years to departments for funding in support of an on-site visit to one or multiple non-academic organizations. 

The purpose of this fund is to support professional development, learn about career opportunities and/or gain technical expertise in support of c​urrent research endeavors. ​
