The endowment to fund this annual award was established in 2008 through gifts given by friends and family of Eric Bradford and Charlie Rominger. The award was created to honor the memory of these men and to recognize UC Davis affiliates for their work toward agricultural sustainability.
The endowment to fund this annual scholarship was given in 2007 from the estate of Constant M. and Tempest B. van Vlierden. Each year, one student enrolled in the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems major in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will be honored with this scholarship. Students should apply through the UC Davis Scholarship Office.
