Program Overview

Purdue Agricultural Centers Experience

Agricultural Research at Purdue and the Office of Academic Programs in the College of Agriculture are once again sponsoring a joint venture to promote undergraduate research. The Purdue Agricultural Centers Experience (PACE) program is now accepting applications for student participants for summer 2014!

PACE is designed to expose​ undergraduate students who have little or no farm experience to applied research at one of the eight Purdue Agricultural Centers (PACs). Under the leadership of a faculty member, undergraduates will be engaged in research at one or multiple PACs.

We anticipate that the program will be very competitive. If you have any questions, please Contact Us.
