U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security

Purdue University Center for Global Food Security

The U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security graduate research grant program supports exceptional graduate students who are interested in developing a component of their graduate research in a developing country setting and in collaboration with a mentor from an International Agricultural Research Center (IARC), or a qualifying* National Agricultural Research System (NARS) unit. We anticipate the fellowship program will lay a foundation for launching long-term international research collaborations for the students and their affiliated faculty advisors and IARC/NARS mentors. We envision that the group of graduate students supported by the program will eventually assume leadership positions in a wide variety of organizations, and across an array of disciplines related to food security.
