US Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security Fellowship Opportunity Presentation

September 17, 10:30 am – 11:30 am, Dana Building 1024

The US Borlaug Fellows Program in Global Food Security supports US graduate students at the masters and doctoral levels at US universities who are interested in developing part of their graduate research in a developing country setting (open to most developing countries). Our fellows work in collaboration with a mentor from an International Agricultural Research Center or a national-level research institution or university within the host country. Fellowships range from $15,000 – $46,000 depending upon length of time and research costs.

Purdue University is now inviting applications in support of graduate research on topics related to the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative – Feed the Future. All topics that relate to food security (in agriculture, social sciences, humanities, technology, engineering, health and nutrition, business and economics, etc.) are admissible. The deadline for receipt of applications for the current round is November 9, 2015. US citizenship is required to receive a fellowship.

Information will also be provided on the next Borlaug Summer Institute in June 2016, which is open to both domestic and international graduate students.
