Lloyd Noble Scholars in Agriculture

One semester or one summer... That's all it takes to become a member of a team, impact the agriculture industry and set a course that can change your life.

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 Foundation 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 Foundation agricultural consultants and researchers, meeting with one of Noble's 1,700 cooperator-families – actual agricultural producers – that work with the Agricultural Division 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.

What will I be doing?

Scholars work alongside agricultural researchers and consultants who assist farmers, ranchers and other land owners operating in the cattle belt of the Southern Great Plains to attain financial, production and quality-of-life goals. Scholars will develop valuable applied agriculture skills, interact with and assist in identifying solutions to real-world issues encountered by producers, and further enhance communication and leadership skills necessary to be effective advocates for agriculture. The objective of the scholar experience is to provide participants a competitive advantage in the development of a career in a leading agricultural field of study, thus enabling them to positively impact the agriculture industry of tomorrow. At the conclusion of the summer program, scholars present their findings to the Noble Foundation agriculture and research community.
