AgDiscovery Summer Enrichment Program
AgDiscovery is a two-week summer outreach program to help students learn about careers in animal science, veterinary medicine, agribusiness, regulatory science and plant pathology. Participants, ages 14-17, live on UAPB’s campus and learn about agricultural science from university professors, practicing veterinarians and professionals working for the U.S. government. Students chosen for AgDiscovery participate in hands-on labs, workshops, field trips and other activities. The program is sponsored by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
“The AgDiscovery camp helped me decide what career path I wanted to follow and that UAPB was the college choice for me. I am currently enrolled in the School of Agriculture, Fisheries and Human Sciences majoring in Textiles and Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Agribusiness. I attribute my academic success partly to the AgDiscovery program because it opened my eyes to many different career paths in agriculture and in APHIS,” says past AgDiscovery participant and counselor Elaina Buckner.
The 2019 AgDiscovery program will be June 8-21, 2019. The application deadline is March 15, 2019. Applicants can access the application forms in early January 2019 on the official USDA AgDiscovery page
