Scholarship supports U of S grad student’s career aspirations
“I developed my passion for agriculture growing up on a small farm near Fairlight, in southeast Saskatchewan,” says Andrea De Roo, a graduate student in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources. “The hard work was challenging at times – but I loved every bit of it.”
It was this passion that brought Andrea to study plant sciences at the University of Saskatchewan. “My research focuses on cleaver weeds in Western Canada,” she explains. “As I learn more about this species my project expands. In fact, it’s grown so much that I hope to convert my master’s thesis into a PhD soon.”
