America’s Cultivation Corridor has announced the launch of its first class of Innovation Interns from Iowa State University and the launch of its Next Gen Innovation Impact Study program in partnership with ISU’s Start Something College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

“We’re excited to launch this program to provide Iowa State students the opportunity to connect with and learn from leaders in Iowa agriculture, renewable fuels, food systems and more,” said Billi Hunt, executive director of America’s Cultivation Corridor. “Even more importantly, we’re looking forward to the students’ fresh perspectives and insights on agricultural sustainability and ideas to share their innovative ideas with the industry and consumers.”

The class of eight interns will participate in the internship during the fall 2022 semester with learning opportunities including panel discussions, facility tours and networking. The Next Gen Innovation Impact Study program will introduce students to the “innovative technologies and practices that will allow farmers, companies and individuals to make even more progress in achieving their sustainability goals.”
