Association of Plant Pathology Scholars

The UK Department of Plant Pathology graduate student association, known as “APPS” (Association of Plant Pathology Scholars) was established in 2003 to voice student opinions and to keep students informed of new departmental policies. This support group meets regularly to update graduate students on upcoming policy changes that directly affect them. To voice our graduate student opinions and concerns, a student representative is present at every faculty meeting. The graduate student association also plans social and enrichment programs, such as departmental picnics and the graduate student retreat.  APPS also sponsors the annual Extension seminar presented by the department's Extension specialists.

If you would like to know more about this association or have any questions regarding being a graduate student in our department, please feel free to contact us at
