AgDiscovery at Florida A&M University (FAMU) is a two-week summer outreach program. The program targets diverse populations of current 8-11 (rising 9th-12th) grade students from across the country interested in animal science, veterinary medicine, and related fields. Students gained experiential learning via different delivery approaches through workshops, laboratory and field exercises, and various cultural and teambuilding activities.

The program gives students many different experiences in animal science to help them better understand and refine their career paths and the opportunity to apply for early admission to FAMU.

In an in-person setting, students live on FAMU's campus for the duration of the program free of cost and receiving complete safety and security services.

FAMU AgDiscovery is annual and starts on the second Sunday in June and ends in two weeks on a Saturday. The FAMU AgDiscovery2023 program will be June 11-24.




The application will start in late December 2022, and you may find the application and related information at the USDA website
