The Ohio Soybean Council Foundation recently announced Angel Haller has been awarded a $2,500 Ohio Soybean Council Foundation Scholarship for the 2024-25 academic year.

Haller from Millersburg is pursuing a Ph.D. in entomology at the Ohio State University. Haller’s research analyzes the genetics of resistant aphids to understand how to better address them with pesticides and plant genetics.

This is the 17th year for the OSCF Scholarship Program, which was created to encourage undergraduate students to pursue degrees in one of the many academic fields that support the future of the soybean industry — agriculture, business, communication, economics, education, science and technology — and to support ongoing graduate-level research. Since 2008 the OSCF Scholarship Program has awarded over $640,000 in scholarship funds to students studying agriculture or a related field at Ohio colleges or universities.

“I have served on the scholarship selection committee for several years and can honestly say that this is one of the most impressive classes of winners we’ve had,” said Cindy Layman, Hardin County soybean farmer and scholarship selection committee member. “Each of these students will have a tremendous positive impact on our industry.”

Established by the Ohio Soybean Council in 2007, the Ohio Soybean Council Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of the soybean industry through the support of scientific research and education.
