The Kentucky State University AgDiscovery (AgD) Program is a two-week, residential program targeting diverse students from limited-resource communities who are interested in careers in animal science and veterinary medicine.
At the Kentucky State University AgDiscovery (AgD) Program, the curriculum is designed to introduce animal science and veterinary medicine through structured educational activities. Students selected to participate in AgD will have hands-on experiences through lab and research projects, workshops, and site visits, including animal dissections and autopsies.
AgD participants receive assistance in techniques that will improve skills on standardized exams, such as the ACT, and will also participate in a variety of character- and team-building activities, which require the use of math, science and technology.
Recreational activities are integrated into the program to promote physical health and wellness, and to enhance interpersonal skills among the students.
Applicants must be a middle or high school student, not younger than 14 and not older than 17 by May 31st of the program year. Applicants should also have a strong and sincere interest in animal science and veterinary medicine.
