U.S. Department of Agriculture — International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship

The U.S. Department of Agriculture welcomes applications for the 2020 Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program. The program offers training and collaborative research opportunities to scientists, researchers, and policymakers from developing countries. Themes include soil and water management; agricultural genetics and breeding; livestock health and management; agricultural processing; biotechnology; climate change; biofuels; and others (varying by eligible countries). Awards range from US$300 thousand to US$700 thousand. Fellows work with a mentor at a U.S. university, research center, or government agency — usually for 8-12 weeks. The U.S. mentor later visits the fellow’s home institution to continue collaboration. The application deadline is 29 May 2020. Details here
