International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program
Established in 2018, the International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program (IAEFP) provides fellowships to eligible U.S. citizens to assist developing countries in establishing school-based agricultural education and youth extension programs.
The program aims 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. Applicants who wish to be IAEFP Fellows should contact the implementing universities or organizations. Application requirements and deadlines vary.
The IAEFP is implemented by State cooperative institutions or other colleges and universities in the United States (through a cost-reimbursable agreement), or by domestic private voluntary organizations, domestic nonprofit agricultural organizations or cooperatives, domestic nongovernmental organizations, or any other domestic private entities (through a cooperative agreement).
