2018 Freeman Rowe Scholarship Awards


The CMS Board is pleased to announce the 2018 Scholarship/Grant award recipients. The Board made a unanimous vote to award $1000 scholarships each to Edward Barge and Gillian Bergmann based upon their project proposals.  Both are students at Oregon State University. Each recipient will receive $500 now, and $500 at the completion of their project. Both will be invited to present their results at a future CMS meeting (a scholarship requirement).

The CMS Freeman Rowe Scholarship/Grant program began in 2008 in honor of Freeman Rowe, the “father” of the Cascade Mycological Society. The objectives of the Freeman Rowe Scholarship awards are:

  • To stimulate research into the biology and ecology of fungi and the practical application of mycology to environmental and human health.
  • To promote the CMS mission of educating the general public and our own members about fungi, fungi identification, fungi ecology and the role and importance of fungi in human society and natural ecosystems.
