Graduate Student Support

History and Purpose:



The George and Hilda Liebig Endowed Fund in Environmental Sciences was established in 2002 with an estate gift from Hilda Liebig. The Liebig Fund honors the memory of George Liebig and the contributions he made to UCR during his nearly 40-year career as a soil scientist. In 1931 Mr. Liebig joined the Agricultural Chemistry Department of the Citrus Experiment Station in Riverside. In 1951, as the Citrus Experiment Station was transforming into the University of California, Riverside, his department was renamed Soil and Plant Nutrition. Mr. Liebig retired from UCR in 1969. His wife, Hilda passed away in 2001 and through her estate, left the legacy of the fund.

The George and Hilda Liebig Endowed Fund in Environmental Sciences supports general educational uses and purposes as determined by the Department of Environmental Sciences.

Use of the the George and Hilda Liebig Endowed Fund in Environmental Sciences is determined by the Department of Environmental Sciences. Please see http://envisci.ucr.edu/undergrad/scholarships.html for information about this opportunity.
