The U.S. Department of Agriculture welcomes applications for the 2015 Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program. The program offers training and collaborative research opportunities to scientists, researchers, and policymakers from 34 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). Fellows work with a mentor at a U.S. university, research center, or government agency -- usually for 6-12 weeks. The U.S. mentor later visits the fellow’s home institution to continue collaboration.
