Ten additional University of Illinois horticulture students will receive scholarships later this year, thanks to $10,111 contributed last year to the Chris Doll Scholarship Fund through the Illinois Specialty Growers Association (ISGA).

ISGA established the scholarship in 2014. Eight U of I students have received scholarships since 2015. This year’s scholarship winners will be announced in the fall.

Doll was a long-time ISGA member and served as a U of I Extension area adviser in fruit and vegetables in 17 southwestern counties. He passed away Oct. 12, 2020, so the scholarship will continue to honor his memory and spark future industry leaders.
