VP Promise – Enriching the Undergraduate Student Experience in the UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
What is the VP Promise?
Introduced by Dr. J. Scott Angle, Vice President for Agriculture and Natural Resources, the VP promise is an initiative to provide financial assistance for students pursuing experiences in agriculture, life sciences and natural resources. CALS supports student success both inside and outside of the classroom and encourages students to broaden their perspectives through enriching opportunities such as study abroad programs and travel to conferences. The VP Promise is an avenue to make these experiences more attainable to undergraduate students.
