2019 Horticultural Science Summer Institute Application
Thank you so much for your interest in our Horticultural Science Summer Institute. We have filled all of our spots for this year's program, but hope you will apply next year! If you have any questions, please email Liz Driscoll at liz_driscoll@ncsu.edu.

The Horticultural Science Summer Institute will be July 7-12th, 2019 and is sponsored by North Carolina State University and North Carolina Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Program with the Department of Horticultural Science. High school-aged youth (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors) are invited to apply to a weeklong, residential horticultural experience on the campus of NC State University.

Youth will have hands-on opportunities to explore a broad range of horticultural possibilities from breeding better fruits and vegetables, growing a diverse selection of woody ornamentals, lengthening the life of cut flowers, learning sustainable production practices and delving into practical tools that enhance our understanding of plant processes. Participants will visit a variety of horticultural businesses. Youth will also be introduced to career possibilities, college-making decisions and leadership development and enjoy evening entertainment and team-building activities.

The cost of the institute will be $600 with a $150 deposit due upon application acceptance. All lodging, workshop materials and field trips and most meals are provided. Scholarships may be available. Application window is Jan 15-April 15 and application acceptances will be made on a rolling basis.
