Jared Pruch wins David S. Easly Award!
The University of Oregon Graduate School has announced this year’s award recipients, and among them is our very own Jared Pruch, first year master’s candidate in Environmental Studies. Jared has been awarded the David S Easly Award, which supports outstanding master’s and doctoral students pursuing degrees related to environmental conservation and preservation.
For his research, he will be investigating the potential for collaboration between young farmers and land trust organizations in Oregon, looking to determine whether land trusts may be uniquely poised to help fill the gap between aging farmer-landowners and the next generation of Oregon farmers.
We congratulate Jared on this wonderful accomplishment, and look forward to seeing the great things he will do with his research at UO!
