Help students discover the world

Austin Skeens had never been on an airplane, much less traveled overseas.

All that changed when the CALS student spent a winter break studying food security in South Africa. Seeing food insecurity in a foreign land drove home how important, and challenging, global food issues are — and his journey inspired him to do more.

“Whether it’s helping with economic problems or dietary issues, I just wanted to get back home and give back,” said Skeens, whose trip was made possible because of a scholarship.

Last year, the generosity of CALS donors largely supported experiential learning opportunities like these for more than 20% of our students — but we want to make it so that every one of our students can have such experiences.

Please make a gift to create an endowment for long-term support or make a current use gift to provide a student the chance to explore the world around them.
