Real Pork Scholars is a professional executive mentorship program for graduate students that is designed to leave a lasting impact on participants and the U.S. pork industry. Experience as a Real Pork Scholar will launch students into the next phase of their careers. The program offers students mentorship, peer-to-peer network building, professional training, and funding for relevant research. At the same time, the U.S. pork industry will gain enhanced insights by filling research gaps and building strong connections with emerging thought leaders.
This year’s Scholars include UMN graduate students Haley Schwecke and Sudario Roberto Silva Junior.
The University of Minnesota had two Student Award Winners at the 2023 Conference of Research Workers in Animal Diseases! Both students received Animal Health Institute/Joseph J. Garbarino Foundation Biosafety & Biosecurity Awards for their presentations at the conference.
Graduate students are at the core of our research efforts to deliver science-based solutions to solve the swine industry’s problems. You may be familiar with their names through scientific publications or you may have seen them present the results of their research at various conferences but they deserve a proper introduction. Meet our 2021-2022 graduate students!
Three fellowships are available for graduate students focusing their research on practical solutions for the swine industry: the Morrison, Pijoan and PIC fellowships. Congratulations to this year’s new recipients! We look forward to hearing more from you at the upcoming Allen D. Leman Swine Conference on September 18-21.
