The International Agriculture Education Fellowship Program (IAEFP) is now searching for fellows for programs in Ghana and Guatemala. This program is funded by the USDA Foreign Agriculture Service and is hosted by the Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture at Texas A&M University. This would be a perfect opportunity for graduating seniors, those looking for a year-long sabbatical, or other qualified individuals.
IAEFP is a fully funded, 10-month deployment for selected individuals. Fellows will begin training in the summer 2024, deploy to Ghana and Guatemala in the fall, and return in late spring 2025. While in the country, fellows will live in communities to work as agriscience teachers, establish youth development programs with sustainable agricultural projects, and work with community leaders to identify other agricultural development needs.
