Objective
The main goal of this project is to address the national shortfall in the number of trained graduates available to fill positions in the food, agriculture, renewable natural resources, or the environment sectors. The project will achieve this by adopting strategies that are focused on increasing the number of students earning degrees in the Food, Agricultural and Human Sciences, and providing the necessary support to facilitate their pursuit of careers in these fields. Specifically, High School and/or Community College students who are interested in pursuing degrees in Agribusiness Management, General Agriculture, Human Ecology or Environmental Science will be recruited into the program. These students will be awarded scholarships, and provided with specific support and training during their college tenure to ensure that they are successful, complete their studies in a timely manner and are aware of the career opportunities in the relevant areas.
