Summer Programs for High School Students

College bound? A pre-college summer program in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences (CAES) at N.C. A&T can help you find direction. Participation in a summer program can help you plan your future, prepare for college life, and give you memories and friends to last a lifetime. The CAES offers two free residential summer programs for high school students, some of which offer stipends.

Research Apprenticeship Program (RAP) – Students spend a month between mid- June and mid-July learning research methods from top scientists in the CAES. Apprentices also complete an independent research project. A stipend and free room and board are provided. To learn more, visit the RAP Facebook page.

Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL), co-sponsored by the North Carolina Farm Bureau, is a week-long program in June to build leadership potential in rising seniors who are interested in agriscience professions. Room and board are free.
