The “SEEDS” Scholars Program (STEM  Engagement for the  Enrichment of  Diverse  Students) is designed to increase the number of Hispanic students pursuing future graduate degrees by providing a firm foundation of advanced knowledge and skills in STEM-related fields (science, technology, engineering, math), beginning in the first two years of college.
The SEEDS Program will maximize awareness of agriculture-related themes such as global food security, hunger, and sustainability, and will mentor underrepresented STEM students in these areas who will serve as a driving force in our community.
