USDA-TAMUK Career Experience Program

Thanks to USDA and USDA-HSI funding, students have the opportunity to gain technical skills in science and research through career experiences.  Currently, Texas A&M University—Kingsville has five USDA Projects that fund undergraduates to pursue internships in their fields of interest that relate to careers in agricultural, biological and food industry fields.  The projects are designed to enhance the educational programs of outstanding students that are capable of enhancing the nation’s food, agricultural, and natural resource scientific and professional work force.

USDA Projects

There are over 10 institutions collaborating with the five projects.  The institutions include:  University of Puerto Rico, Florida International University, The University of Texas-Pan American, The University of Texas-El Paso, New Mexico State University, El Paso Community College, Dona Ana Community College, Galveston College, South Texas College, Texas State Technical College, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Texas A&M AgriLife and the Texas A&M Soltis Center for Education and Research-Costa Rica.
