University of Maryland

College of

Agriculture and Natural Resources

Eliminating hunger. Preserving our natural resources. Ensuring human health. At the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR), that is what we do. We are committed to carrying out the University of Maryland’s land-grant mission of providing the highest caliber of academics, research and University of Maryland Extension services to improve the lives of citizens in Maryland and around the world.


Scholarships and Faculty Support

Undergraduate Scholarships


Too many of the most talented and dedicated undergraduate students are graduating with substantial levels of debt. The prospect of incurring substantial debt often causes students who could have had brilliant careers in agriculture and natural resources to choose other majors simply because another college or university can offer more financial aid. Increases in undergraduate student scholarship funding—both endowed funds and funds for immediate use—will ensure that we can maintain our commitment to keeping our doors open to the best and brightest, regardless of their financial means.

Graduate Fellowships


Graduate students conduct research that expands the reach and productivity of our faculty and their discoveries. Their presence in the laboratories and in the fields is invaluable for our research portfolio. Fellowships make it possible for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources to successfully recruit and retain graduate students who will become the faculty members and leaders of tomorrow.

Chairs and Professorships


Endowed chairs and professorships allow Maryland to recruit and retain the very best faculty to guide the future of our institution. The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources will raise funds for endowing 1 professorship and 1 chair.

Campus Farm


The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources will raise funds for the renovation of the Campus Farm, in particular the arena and pavilion section of the Farm to enhance safety and educational instruction.
