Andika Gunadi, MS student in Plant Pathology, was awarded a $5000 graduate scholarship from the Ohio Soybean Council Foundation for the 2011-2012 academic year. Gunadi, whose advisor is Anne E. Dorrance, earned a BS in Biochemistry from Ohio State. He entered the graduate program in 2010 and is working on the project, "Linkage Analysis and Sequence Characterization of Rps8 and Rps3 Resistance Genes in Soybean Chromosome 13." OSCF scholarships are awarded competitively based on merit to students enrolled at Ohio universities engaged in soybean research. Previous scholarship awardees from Dorrance's program include Hehe Wang (2010-2011) and Margaret L. Ellis (2009-2010).
