AgCenter taking applications for agricultural research internship

(11/10/23) RAYNE, La. — The LSU AgCenter has begun accepting applications for its 2024 Charles and Rose Broussard Internship program.

The children of Charles and Rose Broussard established this award to honor their parents’ hard work and dedication to agriculture and conservation.

Charles Broussard was a ninth-generation cattleman, rancher and farmer whose influence and contributions to these industries during his lifetime were immeasurable. His wife, Rose, was also devoted to promoting agriculture and offered her support through her way of giving and living life to the fullest.

This award is designated to offer students practical experience with agriculture research through a paid internship opportunity with one of three research stations within the LSU AgCenter system: the H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station, Iberia Research Station or Dean Lee Research Station.

“With this internship program, the Broussard family and the LSU AgCenter want to offer students the opportunity to get first-hand experience in agricultural research,” said Kurt Guidry, H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station resident coordinator. “The aim of this program is to spark some interests in making agriculture a career through practical experience at one of our research stations.”

Applicants must be part- or full-time high school or college students. Internships will be primarily focused on the summer, but some flexibility exists for alternative time periods. Preference will be given to applicants from Vermilion Parish.
