The 2022-2023 cohort of the Professors of the Future program includes one graduate student from the Food Science Graduate Group and two postdoctoral scholars from the Department of Food Science and Technology. The program fosters leadership skills in outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to prepare them for successful careers in an increasingly competitive professional environment. As part of the program, fellows design and execute projects to enhance the professional development of their peers.
In recognition of the value of her UC Davis Food Science degrees, Alumna Margaret Lawson ’77, MS ’79, has made an estate commitment to create the Margaret A. Lawson Scholarship for undergraduate students in food science, and the Margaret A. Lawson Fellowship to support graduate students in food science. These funds will be endowed in perpetuity to support and encourage generations of UC Davis students seeking food science degrees.
