Our college’s brightest alumni in one place… The awards ceremony for the 2015 Sangrok Award for Agricultural and Life Sciences, the CALS Scholarship Award, and the CALS Teaching Award
On the 3rd of November, 2015, CALS and the CALS Foundation of Agricultural Education and Research hosted an awards ceremony for the 23rd Sangrok Award for Agricultural and Life Sciences, the 15th CALS Scholarship Award, and the 13th CALS Teaching Award. Due to a change in regulations, the name of the old “Sangrok Research Award for Agricultural and Life Sciences” was changed in 2015 to the “Sangrok Award for Agricultural and Life Sciences” (hereafter, Sangrok Award).
The Sangrok Award was created by the CALS Foundation of Agricultural Education and Research in 1991, with a donation from CALS Professor Emeritus Han, In-Kyu, designed to stimulate research and educational activities in the field of Agricultural and Life Sciences. The award is given to a CALS professor who has been recognized for his or her outstanding contribution to the promotion and development of scholarship in the field of Agricultural and Life Sciences, through research, writing, and education. Meanwhile, the CALS Scholarship Award and the CALS Teaching Award were created in 1998 to celebrate the educational and research activities of professors and to advance agricultural science and technology. These awards are given to a professor who has produced outstanding research papers or writing (the Scholarship Award) and to a professor who exemplifies and encourages best practice in student education, or shows a creative and progressive dedication to teaching (the Teaching Award).

All of the prizewinners declared that they would not have received such an honor without the help and support of the whole Seoul National University family; they resolved to make every effort to promote the continued development of the school.
