NEWS: ALC collaboration leads to a NIFA Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates grant

A team from UVM Extension and the Department of Plant and Soil Science, including ALC members Scott Lewins, Vic Izzo, and Karen Nordstrom, was recently awarded a Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, part of the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative’s Research Education and Workforce Development Program.

This exciting collaboration  will fund the development of an innovative undergraduate fellowship program in 2022 rooted in a transdisciplinary extension experience that will catalyze not only the dissemination of cutting-edge research ideas and technologies, but also demonstrate a healthy collaborative community for a thriving researcher and farmer partnership at a time when collaboration will be key to addressing increasingly complicated agricultural challenges.

Congratulations to all involved!
