The Department of Agriculture offers four scholarships worth $500 each for agriculture students who are participating in our Study Abroad Programs in France or Argentina. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is March 1.
Studying in France
Participants in the French Exchange Program study international agriculture, agribusiness, or horticulture at Ecole Superieure d' Agriculture in Angers — the gateway to the Loire Valley — for four weeks.
The agriculture of this area is varied with a wide range of animal and crop production. In addition to regular classes and field trips, participants specialize during the fourth week in agriculture, agribusiness, horticulture or international marketing and finance, with an opportunity to meet with French farmers and agribusiness representatives. Instruction is in English.
Students will receive 6 credits during the program. Learn more about earning course credit on the trip.
Participants will also have time to explore the magic of Paris. Follow us on Facebook and learn moreApply for Study Abroad Program in France
Studying in Argentina
Participants in the Argentina program will learn about the farm to table food systems in Argentina. We will visit Buenos Aires and Rosario.
In the Spring semester, students and faculty will meet to prepare for a trip to Argentina. Students will have a pre-departure orientation. They will be asked to do secondary research about Argentina, its history, culture, economy, agriculture and food industry. Then, students and faculty leaders will travel to Argentina. At the end of the program, participants will be able to explain/identify:
- agriculture and food industry practices,
- farm to fork supply chain management applications,
- cultural influences on how restaurants and farmers manage their operations,
- differences and similarities between US and Argentinian food and agricultural practices.
Students will receive 3 credit hours. Learn more about the program.
