USDA Borlaug Fellowship Program for Vietnam

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is pleased to announce the 2019 Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program (Borlaug Fellowship Program) for Vietnam.

The Borlaug Fellowship Program promotes agricultural productivity, food security, and economic growth through collaborative research. The program offers training for agricultural research, leadership, and agricultural policy to university faculty, researchers, and government officials in Vietnam. Competitively selected Fellows will work one-on-one with a U.S. mentor who will coordinate the training program. After completion of the 10-12 week fellowship, the mentor will visit the Fellow's home institution to continue collaboration on the research topic. USDA will select U.S. host institutions and mentors for each fellow.

The 2019 Borlaug Fellowship Program is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS).

The application deadline for the 2019 Borlaug Fellowship Program for Vietnam is December 31, 2018.
