The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in cooperation with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is pleased to announce the 2012 Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program (Borlaug Fellowship Program) for selected Feed the Future countries. These Fellowships are offered as part of the Feed the Future 21st Century Borlaug 21st Century Leadership Program. They are intended to increase the number of women in leadership positions in agriculture and, as such, only female applicants will be selected.

The Borlaug Fellowship Program promotes food security and economic growth by increasing scientific knowledge, advancing the transfer of new agricultural technology, and encouraging collaborative research to improve agricultural productivity. Under the Feed the Future 21st Century Borlaug Leadership Program, early to mid-career female agricultural professionals with an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong desire to aid agricultural development in their home country are targeted. 

Please note: The deadline for all countries is April 6, 2012.
