Food security center sets Borlaug program information session

The Purdue Center for Global Food Security (PCGFS) will hold an information session Thursday (Jan. 24) for graduate students and faculty to outline opportunities through the U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security Program.

The session will cover two key opportunities -- a graduate research fellowship grant program and a summer institute on global food security. Presenters will cover program details and the application process. Application deadlines are March 4 for the summer institute and April 1 for the fellows program.

The session will be at 4 p.m. in Pfendler Hall, Deans Auditorium (Room 241). RSVPs are not required.

The Borlaug program, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), has a goal is 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.
