Participate in Paid Summer Research at the University of Delaware

UD Envision is an undergraduate research experience funded through the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) focused on generating the next generation of Agricultural Scientists. As minorities are underrepresented in these disciplines and research target areas, this project has been developed to address this disparity. Intensive, hands-on research education and experiential learning projects help to bridge the perceptual change required for students to Envision themselves as Scientists. The faculty areas of research span the disciplines of One Health, Food Security and Environmental Sustainability. The summer includes trainings include video production and storytelling, specific research techniques, laboratory safety, research ethics, as well as participation in fun and camaraderie-building activities.
