The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology is fortunate in the support it receives from alumni and friends. Through the OSU Foundation, we have been able to establish named funds and endowments in honor, or, in memory, of friends, alumni, and faculty.  Through the growth of these funds we are able to enhance support for our students and programs including; travel expenses for student research, or for travel to present a poster or paper at a national or international meeting; support for student research under the mentorship of a faculty member in their laboratory; purchase of specialized equipment; improvement of facilities, inviting academics from outside OSU to lecture in our seminar series and to meet students. These are just few of the enhancements that make the quality difference for our students’ experience in this department.
