MILE Program Guidelines

Membership is open to on-campus undergraduate students in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Texas Tech University. Students must have at least a 3.0 grade point average that will be upheld throughout the duration of the program.

The application process for Cohort III of the MILE Program will open September 22, 2021. Students who meet the eligibility requirements can apply online before 5 p.m. on Friday, October 29, 2021.

Each MILE cohort will accept a maximum of 14 students into the program, with effort to have representation from each of CASNR's six undergraduate academic departments. Following the deadline, applications will be evaluated for quality and completeness. Only completed and correctly submitted applications received by the deadline will be considered. Incomplete applications (i.e., missing recommendation forms, resumes, etc.) will not be considered. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure all materials have been successfully submitted. Applicants will receive a confirmation email upon receipt of their materials. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in face-to-face interviews with the MILE Advisory Committee. Interviews will take place in the CASNR Dean's Office (located in Goddard). Applicants will be notified via email to sign up for a 20-minute interview time. Applicants should dress professionally and be prepared to discuss their leadership and career goals with the MILE Advisory Committee. The final selection of the 14-member cohort will be made following the interview process.

This is a leadership program that requires students to meet and uphold certain expectations. Students who fulfill the eligibility requirements, complete an application, and are selected to the program will be expected to carry themselves professionally and represent Texas Tech University and the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources with the highest level of respect. Students are expected to maintain a 3.0 grade point average throughout the duration of this course and the rest of the MILE program.
