2020 Postharvest Technology Short Course (2-Week Session) Scholarship Application


Applications are being accepted for the 2020 UC Davis Postharvest Technology of Horticultural Crops Short Course Scholarship. The scholarship provides the opportunity for an individual from a developing country to participate in the annual UC Davis Postharvest Technology of Horticultural Crops Short Course and Field Tour June 15-26 to learn about postharvest handling of horticultural crops.

The goal of the scholarship opportunity is to educate an individual pursuing a career in horticultural science who otherwise would not have the opportunity to participate in postharvest horticultural training in a developed country and who will take the knowledge gained back to their home country to benefit others in the region.

  • Class registration for the two-week classroom and field-based course
  • Course materials
  • Hotel accommodations (single room lodging)
  • Meals
  • Ground transportation from the Sacramento International Airport (SMF) or San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

The selected recipient shall be responsible for air travel to Sacramento or San Francisco, personal expenses, passport, travel visa, and other related costs not described above.

The application deadline for submission is February 7, 2020 (11:59 pm PST). Applications will be reviewed by a panel of UC Davis Postharvest Specialists. The selected recipient will be notified no later than February 28, 2020.  

This scholarship opportunity is available through support from the Leonard and Marsaille Morris Trust and additional donations to the UC Davis Postharvest Technology Center.
