The U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security Program

The U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to expand the pool of U.S. food security professionals who have the scientific base needed to effectively study and manage the global landscapes in support of sustainable food systems. The program is comprised of two key elements; a Graduate Research Fellowship Grant Program and a Summer Institute on Global Food Security.

The intended objectives of the U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security program are:

  • To help train a new generation of interdisciplinary U.S. scientists with fluency in global food security and the skills to strengthen the capacity of developing countries to apply new innovations and technologies,
  • To support the key research themes of the Feed the Future initiative and increase understanding of the links between agricultural production, nutritional status, natural resource conservation, and development,
  • To foster cross-cultural understanding and dialog and the kinds of long-term relationships that are developed through on-the-ground collaborative work, and
  • To work with international partners to sustain a growing global learning community.
