The Lloyd Noble Scholars in Agriculture program offers the opportunity to work alongside agricultural professionals at one of the nation's foremost agricultural consultation and research organizations.
The Noble Research Institute offers opportunities in its core areas of expertise: animal science and livestock management (emphasis on forage-based ruminant systems), agricultural economics, agronomy, horticulture, range management, soils and crops, and wildlife and fisheries. Any given day could find you working directly with Noble Research Institute agricultural consultants and researchers, meeting with one of Noble's 1,700 cooperator-families – actual agricultural producers – that work with the Noble Research Institute on a daily basis, or conducting research on one or more of Noble's seven research farms. This combination of activities and opportunities creates one of the most valuable and unique production-agriculture-related internships in the United States.
The Lloyd Noble Scholars in Agriculture is more than just an internship; it's a chance to benefit the agriculture industry and change your life. It's an opportunity to explore possibilities across a variety of disciplines. It's a chance to discover your future.
