USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) is looking for U.S. universities willing to host mid-level agricultural managers from lower and middle-income countries under the Cochran Fellowship Program. The program calls for universities to design and deliver a training program for six English-speaking fellows on improving food safety in Pakistan through aflatoxin control.

The objective of the Cochran Fellowship Program is to assist eligible countries to develop agricultural systems necessary to meet the food and fiber needs of their domestic populations. Strengthening and enhancing trade linkages between the eligible countries and the U.S. also is important to the program

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, May 1. Contact Zach Bachtell for direct inquiries about this program.
