International Congress
Network with world-renowned experts at an International Congress. In 2015-2016, ACES James Scholars received scholarships to participate in the First International Congress for Postharvest Loss Prevention in Rome, Italy.

“The international Congress introduced us to a whole new world of collaboration, where people from all over the globe were able to come together and make a difference. We learned that a global view is important when it comes to being effective in solving problems you’re passionate about – open-mindedness and collaboration are two of the key components to success in anything.”

--> Anna Kanfer, Agricultural and Consumer Economics (ACES James Scholar Class of 2018)
