I sort of feel bad for other people doing research on campus because they don’t get to see their research applied.

The Experience

In the Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE), social and behavioral scientists investigate youth development by partnering with 4-H programs all over New York State. The aim of PRYDE is to develop new and innovative interventions that will benefit youth in 4-H and, ultimately, their communities. Our current scholars are listed here.

PRYDE Scholars, chosen as rising juniors, are interested in learning about how interventions to help young people are developed in collaboration with experts in youth practice. PRYDE Scholars will have the opportunity to

  • engage with Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement (PRYDE) faculty members in research on issues that are essential to understanding youth development;
  • learn how findings from basic research on youth development can be applied to addressing real world concerns;
  • receive a stipend each semester and be able to apply for funding for summer research and conferences;
  • take part in a seminar on research methods and professional development;
  • and, by working with 4-H programs, effect positive change in the lives of youth in New York State and beyond.
