Dow AgroSciences Graduate Endowed Fellowship

The Dow AgroSciences Graduate Fellowship Endowment was established by the Triumph Seed Company, Mr. Noble Koepp and Mr. Joel Tankersley in 1994. The purpose of this endowment is to provide support for fellowships and graduate students focusing in agronomy.

Dow AgroSciences began in the 1950s as the agricultural unit of The Dow Chemical Company. From the beginning, they have set out to discover and develop innovative solutions that improve the way the world farms.

In 1989, The Dow Chemical Company, which was founded in 1897, entered a joint venture with the Elanco Plant Sciences business of Eli Lilly and Company resulting in the formation of DowElanco. In 1997, The Dow Chemical Company acquired 100 percent ownership of the business and renamed it Dow AgroSciences. Today, they employ more than 9,000 people worldwide, and their 2016 global sales were $6.2 billion (U.S.).
