Eric Luteyn, M.S. student with Dr. Tim Phillips, was recently selected as a 2021 Borlaug Scholar based upon his accomplishments, academic performance, letter of recommendation, and passion for plant breeding. The Borlaug Scholars Committee selected a total of 24 individuals to comprise the Class of 2021, with 18 graduate and 6 undergraduates students. This makes the 4th class of the NAPB Borlaug Scholars. 

With the award, Eric will be attending the NAPB annual meeting hosted by Cornell University this year. "The benefits that I am most interested in are meeting all the leading experts in the field and being paired with a mentor that is a member of the NAPB, works in the area that I am interested in, and will be committed to my professional development," says Eric Luteyn.

Congratulations, Eric, on this great nomination!
