International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program
The International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program will provide fellowships to eligible U.S. citizens to assist developing countries in establishing school-based agricultural education and youth extension programs.
The program was created by Congress in the 2018 Farm Bill to:
- Develop globally minded United States agriculturists with experience living abroad;
- Help meet the food and fiber needs of the domestic population of eligible countries; and
- Strengthen and enhance trade linkages between eligible countries and the United States agricultural industry.
Candidates must hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in an agriculture-related field and must understand U.S. school-based agricultural education and youth extension programs.
