5. The role of AOP in training future soil scientists was discussed at the last Winter Meeting. We have traditionally provided financial support for collegiate soil judging and have established a scholarship fund at Ohio State that our members may individually contribute to.

If your response is yes, please describe how you think we should be engaged.
If your response is yes, are you interested in being involved as a trainer?
