Agriculture and Natural Resources – CANR Summer Institute

Work closely with CANR researchers on projects that will provide “real-world” experiences in scientific careers.

The University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (UD CANR) is offering summer research and education experiences to undergraduates (both UD and non-UD students) who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree in the agricultural, natural resources, or life sciences. 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.
