Fund established in 2021 to honor of Aidan Leaf Mullin by supporting an annual scholarship to Cal Poly Humboldt students interested in how soils can foster sustainable agriculture. College of Natural Resources & Sciences (CNRS)

Aidan was born in San Diego, CA in 2002 and moved to Monte Sereno, CA in 2013. He loved the outdoors – camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, farming – and enjoyed spending time in the Santa Cruz Mountains. In school, he was naturally drawn to the sciences. He was also a gifted guitar player and loved many styles, with a particular fondness for the Grateful Dead. He planned to attend Humboldt State University in 2020 to study soils. Unfortunately, Aidan died unexpectedly in 2020 and will be forever loved and missed by his family and friends. Through this scholarship, Aidan’s memory lives on. The recipients of the Aidan Leaf Mullin Memorial Scholarship are carefully and thoughtfully chosen as individuals who exemplify Aidan’s spirit and ideals. To support scholarly focus, the selected students will be awarded at least $1,000 to help with tuition, books, and living expenses.
