The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) and a consortium of leading food and agriculture companies and universities are pleased to announce that the FFAR Fellows program will begin accepting applications December 15. This program combines cutting-edge food or agriculture-related research with innovative professional development programs designed to help students be career-ready upon graduation. Agronomy graduate student Jeremie Favre is participating in the 2018 FFAR Fellow Program.
The professional development portion of the program (approx. $10,000/year value) is open to current or future PhD students at any PhD granting institution, while funding for assistantship, tuition and fees ($50,000/year) is also available for students from consortium member institutions. FFAR Fellows will be co-sponsored by industry (or other non-federal funding source) and FFAR. For more information, visit www.ffarfellows.org.
