Universities all over the United States are offering FREE summer experiences in various Agricultural programs. The only obligation the student has is to pay for the transportation to and from the university.
Please help us get the word out about this incredible "free" opportunity we just received from the USDA. The USDA pays for everything EXCEPT transportation to and from the university. I have attached information on how to apply, which universities are participating, and age requirements. This application process is based on the information the student provides. So it would be important for any interested student to start NOW on the application process. The most important part is getting the word out to everyone.
We also have hard copies for each university and the summer experience that university offers in the front lobby of the high school.
Our students have videotaped each university's offerings, description of Ag experience, and dates. These videos are on our Twitter which can be found on Metcalfe County High School's webpage.
When the student selects the university and the summer experience offered at that university he/she needs to call the number we have provided on our Twitter video feed and directly speak to the person running that specific program at that university. They will be able to better explain the particulars for that university Ag experience.
Notice the deadline for all applications is March 1.
