Cooperative Extension Summer Scholars

The Cooperative Extension Summer Scholar Program is for current University of Delaware undergraduate and graduate students. Selected scholars will be paired with Cooperative Extension personnel to work on a project in line with Cooperative Extension’s mission to connect university knowledge, research, and resources with the public to address youth, family, community and agricultural needs.

During the summer scholar session, students will follow Cooperative Extension’s service learning model, implemented through one of extension’s four program areas: 4-H youth development, family and consumer sciences, lawn and garden, and agriculture and natural resources.  The summer scholar session will take place June 9 – August 14, 2019. Scholars will receive a stipend for their participation.

Interested students are encouraged to apply before the application deadline of February 8, 2019. Applicants will be invited to meet with the selection committee. Selected scholars will be notified of their acceptance into the program prior to spring break.
