ARGE Research Assistantship

Revised November 2023


ARGE Research Assistantship

The purpose of the Agriculture Research Graduate Research Assistantship Program is to attract and support promising graduate students who graduated from a U.S. high school that demonstrate the ability to contribute to a campus community of scholars where diverse perspectives, abilities, backgrounds, and experiences are welcomed, respected, and valued to our graduate programs in the Colleges of Agriculture, Health and Human Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University and that are aligned with research and education priorities of USDA-NIFA.

Due to the source of funds mentors for students must be part of a Hatch or Multistate Hatch project.

First nomination round for the ARGE Research Assistantship must be uploaded via Qualtrics by Dec. 14, 2023 at 12:00 pm (noon).
Second nomination round for the ARGE Research Assistantship must be uploaded via Qualtrics by Jan. 25, 2024.

If the recruit decides to decline the offer from Purdue, then the offer to receive an ARGE Research Assistantship will be extended to the most highly ranked individual in the nomination pool.
