2017 Summer Study Abroad Grant Recipient

Posted Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Last year, a junior in MSU’s Horticultural Science program, Melissa Eggleston, was selected as a recipient of the 2017 Study Abroad Grant. Eggleston used the funds to attend an International Studies in Horticulture course, The History and Future of Horticulture in the United Kingdom.

In May, 2017, Eggleston embarked on a two-week study journey exploring horticulture in the United Kingdom. Her program took her to London, central England and Northern Ireland where she explored gardens, toured greenhouses, and participated in a service project at the Bishop’s Palace in Waterford, Ireland.

Melissa Eggleston is a senior in the Horticultural Science program studying horticulture with a minor in agribusiness management. She hopes to become a greenhouse grower after she graduates. When she is not spending her time in the greenhouse or working as the treasurer for the Student Horticulture Association, she enjoys reading, baking, and bookkeeping.
