JUNE 8th - AUGUST 14th

The University of Delaware's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources held a 10-week Summer Institute for underrepresented populations of undergraduate students, who have an interest in pursuing graduate degrees in the agricultural and natural resource sciences. The Summer Institute is intended to provide these students with an opportunity to learn about the varied and exciting opportunities available in graduate education at the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

The Summer Institute was held on the University of Delaware campus in Newark, Delaware from June 8 - August 14, 2015. Students each received a stipend to help cover costs of participation. If incurred, limited travel expenses and housing costs provided in university residence halls were covered.
