The Branch Experiment Stations (BES) for the College of Agricultural Sciences are pleased to announce an exciting experiential learning opportunity for Oregon State University undergraduate students. The Branch Experiment Stations are off-campus research facilities located across Oregon. They are located in regions of Oregon where they can have the most impact in helping stakeholders (farmers, ranchers, fishermen, food processing entrepreneurs) to address the critical issues specific to that locale.
After the application deadline of March 22, BES faculty will review applications and contact students they wish to interview.
Successful applicants will be provided an hourly wage, with some locations also providing housing. Applicants will be expected to spend between ten and thirteen weeks at the BES location. Most opportunities are during Summer Term, however several take place during Fall or Winter (please read the opportunity descriptions carefully).
Student Researchers are required to complete a written report (either a research paper, or a weekly blog) and create and present a research poster at the October 2021 CAS Student Showcase & Career Fair.
Funding for the experiential learning experience is for the stated period and is limited to students enrolled as OSU undergraduates at the time of application and for the term following completion of the stated period (students classified as graduate students or in Veterinary Medicine are not eligible to apply or receive an award).
