The 2021 online AgDiscovery Application is now open: www.aphis.usda.gov/agdiscoverya

 

For those who are not familiar, AgDiscovery is a joint program between several universities throughout the nation and the USDA.  It gives high school and middle school aged students the opportunity to participate in a free, 2-4 week summer program.  As AgDiscovery participants, students learn about careers in agriculture, agribusiness, and animal and plant science from professionals in the field.  Participants also engage and interact with other students in team-building and cultural activities.  We are lucky to have a local Hawai’i AgDiscovery Program with the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa!  Our program is normally held in-person, but due to safety concerns with COVID-19, Hawai’i AgDiscovery 2021 will be held virtually July 11- July 24, 2021.  Sixteen high school aged students in grades 9, 10, and 11 will be selected to participate.  Please apply and complete your applications before the deadline of March 25, 2021.

See the flyer and app in the sidebar.
