Scientific Exchanges Fellowship Program – Pilot

The Scientific Exchanges Program advances USDA’s agricultural research goals of promoting collaborative programs among agricultural professionals of eligible countries, agricultural professionals of the United States, the international agricultural research system, and United States entities conducting


research by providing fellowships to individuals from eligible countries who specialize or have experience in agricultural education, research, extension, or other related fields.

Fellowships promote food security and economic growth in eligible countries by educating a new generation of agricultural scientists, increasing scientific knowledge and collaborative research to improve agricultural productivity, and extending that knowledge to users and intermediaries in the marketplace.

The collaborative nature of the training and research programs not only benefits the Fellow, his or her home institution, and partner country; the U. S. recipient, its professors, researchers, and students; and the global agricultural sector by improving agricultural productivity, systems, and processes in partnering nations through the transfer of new science and agricultural technologies.
