A Tarleton State University graduate student received the highest award possible for her research presentation and school leaders finalized two new academic partnerships during September visits to Poland.
Sarah Shawver, a graduate soil science major at TSU, returned from the 7th International Scientific Symposium for Students of Agriculture with the Grand Prix Award for Best Research Presentation. Co-sponsored by Tarleton, the conference took place Sept. 15-17 at the University of Life Science and Technology in Poland.
Slightly more than $56,000 in new funding was approved this week from Erasmus+. It will help Tarleton continue its ongoing partnerships and new agreements with Krakow Agriculture University to create collaborative research and student/faculty exchange opportunities.
