History and Purpose:

Dr. Homer Chapman's UCR connection stretched nearly 80 years, from his appointment as Associate Chemist at the Citrus Experiment Station in 1927, to his 23-year tenure as Chair of the Department of Soils and Plant Nutrition, to his role as an emeritus professor following his retirement in 1966. During his career, Dr. Chapman received international recognition for his innovative and pioneering research in the nutritional needs of citrus trees. He was a founding member and the founding secretary of the International Society of Citriculture.

In 1992, this fund was created to provide scholarship assistance to undergraduate students who wish to pursue studies and research in any phase of citriculture at UCR. Professor Emeritus Homer Chapman and his wife, Daisy E. Chapman, created the Homer and Daisy Chapman Endowed Scholarship for Citrus/Soil and Plant Nutrition Research. Homer Chapman passed away in April 2005 at the age of 106.

The Homer and Daisy Chapman Endowed Scholarship Fund for Citrus/Soil and Plant Nutrition Research assists undergraduate and graduate students who want to pursue studies in citrus research as well as soil and plant nutrition.

Selection and Guidelines:
