Scotland: Youth Engagement in Agriculture
About the Program
Through this course, students will lead elementary school lessons in agriculture, implement service-learning projects in Athens, Georgia, and Dumfries, Scotland, and expand their worldviews.
This nine-day adventure, held over spring break, is the culmination of a spring course that addresses student engagement in the agricultural and environmental sciences. Through a partnership with Dumfries schools and University of Glasgow Dumfries Campus faculty and students, college students will work in teams to engage elementary students in agricultural lessons.
Please note: if you wish to be considered for the CAES International Travel Scholarship, you must apply for this scholarship by Nov. 1. Please apply by this deadline regardless of whether you have received your acceptance for the Scotland study abroad program.
