The scholarship honors an outstanding student pursuing a career in soil or plant sciences.

Theisen, from Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, earned his bachelor’s degree in soil and crop science at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where he was involved with the Students of Agronomy, Soils and Environmental Sciences, the student branch of the ASA. He began his master’s program at NDSU in June and is advised by Harlene Hatterman-Valenti, plant sciences professor and high value crops project leader.

Theisen’s research focuses on evaluating hops production techniques and cultivars that work well in North Dakota.
