According to UAPB Ag Discovery program coordinator, Willie Columbus, applications are now being accepted for Ag Discovery, a residential career and science exploration program for teens. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and UAPB are teaming up to host AG Discovery June 10 thru the 23 on the UAPB campus.

Ag Discovery is designed to help students 14 thru 17 explore careers in animal science, veterinary medicine, agribusiness, plant pathology, aquaculture and agriculture. Students live two weeks on the campus of their host university and learn from APHIS professionals and university professors including practicing entomologists, plant pathologists, wildlife biologists and veterinarians.

Students pay only the cost of transportation to and from UAPB. Room and board and supplies are covered by APHIS. Students must submit an application packet postmarked by March 1. For more information contact Willie Columbus at UAPB in Pine Bluff.
