The Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program promotes food security and economic growth by providing training and collaborative research opportunities to fellows from developing and middle-income countries.
Borlaug Fellows are generally scientists, researchers, or policymakers who are in the early or middle stages of their careers. Each Fellow works one-on-one with a mentor at a U.S. university, research center, or government agency, usually for 8-12 weeks. The U.S. mentor will later visit the Fellow’s home institution to continue the collaboration. Fellows may also attend professional conferences and events within their field, such as the annual World Food Prize Symposium.
