Applications Now Open for FREE Agriscience Summer Academies at UVM

The University of Vermont's Extension’s 4-H Program invites rising 8th-12th graders to apply for one of three, free, residential summer academies held on the UVM campus June 25-30.

AgroTek Innovation, now in its second year, exposes students to agriscience innovation skills by diving deep into one of three topics; Culturing Cells for Healthier Soils, Shifting the Waste to Value Paradigm (converting agricultural waste into value-added products), and Using Virtual Reality for More Precise Agriculture. In addition to learning content, participants will build important relationships with undergraduate student mentors along with faculty and staff.

The deadline to apply is April 1. Individuals who identify as BIPOC, female-identifying, or LGBTQ+, humans traditionally under-represented in agriculture, are encouraged to apply. Contact: Sarah Kleinman at or 802-651-8343 x521.
