• Hello,

    Purdue University’s College of Agriculture is continually interested in supporting youth to reach their educational potential while illustrating the highly scientific applications and principles found within our industry. To increase this awareness, we invite you to nominate your highest achieving students with an interest in biological and life sciences to explore Purdue University at the Pre-College Molecular Agriculture Summer Institute (Pre-College MASI) June 18th-24th, 2017.  

     Pre-College MASI is a one-week residential program held at Purdue University, West Lafayette for academically talented and gifted students (rising juniors and seniors) from throughout Indiana.  The program is free to accepted students and is sponsored by the Purdue University College of Agriculture’s Office of Academic Programs and industry partners. Students will work directly with a Purdue University faculty member on a laboratory experiment and present their experiment at the conclusion of the program. The program will also contain tours of various facilities and field trials in and out of a classroom setting. Here’s what a past Pre-College MASI cohort had to say about their experience!

    We ask that you encourage your students with an interest in science and technology to apply to Pre-College MASI by completing the application and returning it to our office, postmarked no later than April 15th. Please feel free to share this information with other colleagues who may have students with an interest.
