2 Purdue AgEcon students in USDA scholars program

June 27, 2016

Purdue University Department of Agricultural Economics students Nathan Carson and Shelby Swain were among six students nationwide who went to Washington, D.C., May 31-June 10 for the Ag Econ Scholars Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service. 

The program, in its first year, was created to expose master’s students to the resources available within USDA agencies and highlight career opportunities for graduate professionals. The visit included touring a variety of USDA agencies to learn about their organizational structure, duties and employment opportunities; networking with USDA and other government employees; and learning about agricultural policy.

Carson is a second-year master’s student from Plant City, Florida, and Swain is a first-year master’s student from Fishers, Indiana.
