USDA Agricultural Outlook Forum Student Diversity Program
USDA’s Outlook Forum Student Diversity Program is a sponsorship opportunity for agencies, corporations, and organizations. Sponsorship allows junior and senior students who represent the diversity of American agriculture to attend USDA’s annual Outlook Forum. It’s a unique opportunity for students to learn about agribusiness, the latest research, future trends, and policy in contemporary agriculture. In 2007, USDA launched the Diversity Program focused on students majoring in agriculture-related majors at Land Grant colleges and universities.
