Scientific Exchanges Program
The Scientific Exchanges Program aims to educate a new generation of agricultural scientists and foster collaborative research internationally. The program can also help open markets and decrease or eliminate trade barriers, which ultimately creates new opportunities for U.S. agricultural exports. The program was created by Congress in the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008.
Candidates must hold a minimum of a Master’s-level degree, be in the early or middle stage of their career, and represent a university, government agency or research entity in their home country.
