Cornell taking applications for one-year ag fellowship

The new Thomas Wyatt Turner Fellowship is accepting applications for students to attend Cornell University for one year to engage in research and study related to inclusive and sustainable agricultural development.

Applicants should:

  • Be master’s or doctoral students
  • Be currently enrolled at a university within the 1890 land-grant system of historically Black universities in the U.S.
  • Apply by March 1 deadline

Hosted by the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Crop Improvement, the fellowship celebrates the life and legacy of Thomas Wyatt Turner, the first Black American to receive a Ph.D. in botany and the first Black person to receive a Ph.D. in any study at Cornell University.
