Sophie Usher, a University of Georgia student from Clyo studying avian biology, has been selected to receive the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Cordelia Anne Ellis Scholarship for the 2015-16 school year.

Each year the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) at the University of Georgia awards scholarships to eligible students enrolled in majors within the college. Funding for scholarships comes from a diverse assortment of sources and donors and is offered to help with college-related expenses. Scholarships allow students in the CAES to take advantage of opportunities they may only have while in college.

The Cordelia Anne Ellis Scholarship is awarded to a student enrolled in CAES.

Sophie is the daughter of Tim and Holly Usher of Clyo.

Founded in 1859, the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at the University of Georgia is the state’s home for cutting-edge research, student-focused instruction and Extension public service and outreach programs.

On three campuses across Georgia — in Athens, Griffin and Tifton — CAES offers courses of study in 22 majors, 17 minors and 30 graduate programs that cover the breadth of agricultural, environmental and food sciences. In each field, students are able to work directly with world-class researchers who are finding answers to tomorrow’s food supply and environmental questions.
