With your support, our passionate students, scientists, professors and extension professionals have the power to do the extraordinary.
Our undergraduate and graduate students play an active role in our research enterprise and become professional leaders in agriculture and the life sciences. We are dedicated to removing the barriers to an NC State education for talented, hardworking students by increasing the amount of financial support we can offer in the form of scholarships and fellowships.
The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is at the cutting edge of research and innovation. Our Plant Sciences Initiative will seek solutions to the challenges facing agriculture based on an interdisciplinary systems approach. The resulting increase in crop yields, nutritional diversification, sustainability and extended growing seasons will provide long-term benefits for the people of North Carolina, the nation and the world. Our faculty lead important research like this while also preparing our students to be the bold leaders of tomorrow. Continued support for their work is essential.
As a land-grant university, NC State has a commitment to serve North Carolina and its citizens through applied innovation that solves problems and fuels prosperity. Agriculture and life sciences are critical components of our state’s economy. Continued investment in our acclaimed Cooperative Extension network will strengthen our connection and value to farmers and consumers across the state, as will support for our 4-H and FFA youth development programs.
