Scholarship Description:

The International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program (IAEFP) has successfully operated in Ghana for the past year. We are excited to announce our next year of fellowships will be over the 2023 school year (beginning in January) in Guatemala. Why Guatemala? Our funding source, the USDA-FAS, is aligning with the Administration’s priorities for addressing the root causes of migration from the Northern Triangle region of Central America. To be congruent with the Guatemalan school year, the fellowship will begin/deploy in January 2023 for 11 months.

What is the IAEFP?

About the Program:

The International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program (IAEFP) is founded in partnership with AgriCorps, and hosted at the Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture and Development. IAEFP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS).

IAEFP trains and supports Fellows to become teachers abroad during the Ghana and Guatemala school year. These Fellows work in agriculture, and with students in their communities. These communities are selected as prime placement locations by IAEFP and our in-country partner, Humanitas Global. Fellows are trained thoroughly before and during their experience using AgriCorps established training programs.
