USDA Announces Fellowships to Develop the Next Generation of Agriculture

The Department of Agriculture Monday announced fellowship opportunities connecting agency resources with faculty and staff at land grant and other universities. The USDA Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement made the announcement, which seeks to connect participants to USDA and other federal resources while focusing on student development. The fellowship is available for faculty and staff at Hispanic Serving Institutions, 1994 Tribal Colleges and Universities, and 1890 Land-Grant Universities. Participants in the program will receive access to long-term collaboration opportunities, and then share what they learned with students and colleagues at their home institutions. Each program offers opportunities for Education Fellows and Science Fellows. Education Fellows participate in a week-long program in Washington, D.C. scheduled to start June 15 and end on June 19, 2020. Science Fellows participate in a two-week program, consisting of one week in Washington, D.C. and a second week at a USDA research location, ending on June 26, 2020.
