Purdue University will offer again in 2020, a 10-week paid summer program regarding data science for agriculture. Any undergraduate college student (at least 1 semester completed) with US Citizenship or permanent residency is eligible. In this program, students will extend their data science skills in assorted areas of agriculture. Whether novice or with some experience, students will learn more in Excel, Python, Unix shell, and ArcGIS. There is a mix of some hands-on class time and independent work. The program culminates with an independent research project.

Last years' participants came from six different institutions around the country and were very pleased with the experience. Several are now using these instructors as references for jobs and graduate school. This is an opportunity to spend a summer well and be even more qualified for data driven agriculture.
