Visiting Scholar Programs

Borlaug Fellowship Program

The USDA Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program provides opportunities for fellows from developing and middle-income countries to impact food security and economic growth in their home country. The fellows are provided training and collaborative research opportunities in the United States to honor the legacy of the man often referred to as the “father of the Green Revolution.”

Cochran Fellowship Program

Throughout the course of the year we are privileged to host short-term training and industry visits supported by the USDA Cochran Fellowship Program.

Faculty Exchange Program

The Faculty Exchange Program (FEP) provides support for international faculty to develop and improve course curriculum, teaching skills and student assessment through semester long visits to the University of Missouri campus. This program is supported by the USDA FEP.

Scientific Exchanges Fellowship Program on SPS/TBT

The University of Missouri is accepting applications through December 2, 2019, for a pilot program funded by the Scientific Exchanges Fellowship Program, within the United States Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service. This program will fund up to eight fellows to complete research training with a mentor at the University of Missouri for up to 11 weeks on research related to sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) and technical barriers to trade (TBT) topics to support agricultural trade in the eligible countries. The U.S. mentor will later visit the fellow’s home institution to continue collaboration. See the SPS/TBT Training page for more details.
