The University of Delaware's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (UD CANR) is offering summer research and education experiences to undergraduates who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree in the agricultural, natural resources, or life sciences. During the 10-week Summer Institute, students will be paired with CANR researchers on projects that will provide 'real-world' experiences in scientific careers. Participants have the opportunity to develop a project, collect and analyze data, and present their results at a campus wide summer symposium. Participation in the Summer Institute is awarded through a competitive application process and freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are encouraged to apply. The Summer Institute seeks diversity among its participants and thus particularly encourages student applicants who are from groups that are underrepresented in the nation's scientific or agricultural workforce. The Summer Institute encourages applicants from other colleges and universities to apply!

The 10-week Summer Institute will be held on the University of Delaware campus in Newark, Delaware. Students will each receive a $4,000 stipend for personal and food expenses. Participant on campus housing, parking permit, and a modest travel costs can be covered by the program.
