Research & Extension Experiences for Undergraduates

Our undergraduate summer internships offer experiences for undergraduates in plant pathology, plant genetics, horticulture, entomology, and agronomy. Student interns work with faculty, postdoctoral scholars, or graduate students at Kansas State University (K-State) on research projects that are either lab-, greenhouse-, field-based, or a combination of above components. The Summer 2023 program will run from Wednesday May 31 - Friday July 28, 2023.
