U.S. Borlaug Summer Institute on Global Food Security

Please see the call for applications below for the US Borlaug Summer Institute on Global Food Security. BIFAD has had a presentation from the organizers, and this is a very worthwhile program for students interested in the international aspects of food security.

Please note the application deadline. Enrollment in a graduate program at a US university is required, but US citizenship is not required.

Could you please bring this to the attention of graduate students at your institution?

As always, don’t hesitate to contact me if there is anything that I or anyone at APLU can do for you.
