Developing Pathways offers undergraduates in agriculture or allied disciplines with the technical and leadership skills required for employment in the agricultural sectors and farming enterprises or in graduate programs. NIFA will award institutional grants that offer internships, externships, practicums, global leadership, study abroad, and/or experiential learning opportunities in research and extension, which will help students develop the critical thinking, problem solving, digital competency, international experiences, and communication skills needed for future employment and/or higher education. See Program Area Description in Part 1, C, 2 for “Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates” (Program Code A7401).
Advancing Science supports graduate and post-graduate education in agriculture and related disciplines. NIFA Graduate and Postdoctoral Fellowships program areas will continue to support pre-and postdoctoral trainees respectively. These Fellowship awards will also enable interested pre and postdoctoral trainees to obtain training in international research on issues relevant to U.S. agriculture. See Program Area Description in Part 1, C, 3 and Part 1, C, 4 for “Predoctoral Fellowships” (Program Code A7101) and “Postdoctoral Fellowships” (Program Code A7201) respectively.
