Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship - (Borlaug Fellowship Program) - #10.777
The Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program (Borlaug Fellowship Program) helps developing countries strengthen sustainable agricultural practices by providing up to 12 weeks of scientific training and collaborative research opportunities to entry- to mid-career- agricultural research scientists and policymakers from developing and middle income countries. Training venues include U.S. land-grant universities, USDA or other U.S. government agency research facilities, not-for-profit institutions, and international agricultural research centers. Upon their return home, participants will be able to apply this knowledge in their own research programs and teaching, as well as share their experiences with colleagues at their own institutions and throughout their home countries. The program fosters collaboration and networking between scientists in the developing world and the United States. Launched in 2004, the program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Department of State, and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.
