Announcement | Undergraduate Internship Opportunity in Sustainable High-Value Horticulture and Processing

Posted by Katie Doonan | March 15, 2022

Washington State University’s College of Agriculture, Human, and Natural Resources and the WSU Food Systems Program, proudly present the Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates Internship (REEU), a unique opportunity for students interested in careers in food systems. Selected undergraduate fellows will be paired with a WSU Faculty mentor for a 10-week summer internship. Participants will learn valuable skills, through research and extension activities, and receive a generous stipend, travel support, and lodging. Interns will also work independently throughout the summer on a research or extension project with the guidance of their mentor and, at the end of the internship period, present the results at the Undergraduate Research Symposium at the WSU main campus in Pullman, WA.
