The Robert S. Tyzbir Scholarship Fund
The Robert S. Tyzbir Scholarship Fund was established by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences with charitable gifts from colleagues, family, friends and former students of Dr. Robert S. Tyzbir in honor of his accomplishments as an outstanding teacher and advisor over three decades (and counting), his devotion to the fields of nutrition and dietetics, and his dedication to the welfare of his students and the University of Vermont at large.
Spendable income from the Robert S. Tyzbir Scholarship Fund will be used to provide scholarship awards to outstanding undergraduate students from the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences on the basis of academic merit and financial need.
Your gift to this fund will help honor Dr. Tyzbir upon the occasion of his recognition by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) with the 2004 Excellence in College and University Teaching in the Food and Agricultural Sciences Award.
