Careers and Internships

Your future is bright.

Our students are prepared for their careers not only because of their education in the classroom, but also the internship and scholarship opportunities connected to our college. Agriculture and natural resource professionals are needed now more than ever. For example, look at the internship and career opportunities in the U.S. Department of Agriculture; USDA reports that more than 57,000 new jobs in agriculture-related fields created annually and more than 21 million people employed in agriculture-related fields.

Internship, scholarship, and undergraduate research opportunities boost your resume, provide you with valuable real-world educational experience, and help you to decide whether or not a career field is for you. In addition, earn money or college credit and enrich your college experience.

Around the University

UDWRC water internships provide a unique opportunity for undergraduate students, faculty, and scientists to be directly involved in research and education that address critical water resources issues.
Through this federal TRIO program funded by the U.S. Department of Education, funding supports students' involvement in research and scholarly activities. McNair participants are first-generation college students with financial need or members of a traditionally underrepresented group.
This program allows eligible, early-career students to use federal work-study funds to gain research experiences. Students make meaningful contributions while learning about the research and scholarships in their field. This apprenticeship facilitates the relationship between low income, economically disadvantaged students and research faculty.
As an umbrella for student research at UD, URP runs broad-based programs of our own through the academic year and in the summers and we also coordinate with many other offices, departments, and academic units. Staff provide you with general information as well as guidance on how to identify and approach a faculty mentor with whom you might like to work.
