INFAS Graduate Fellows Programs (IGFP)
INFAS has supported two pilot graduate fellowship programs. In the 2020-2021 academic year, we partnered with the Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) to support 11 Native American graduate students working in food systems. The program included a stipend for fellows, 18 INFAS members serving as mentors, and the entire cohort of fellows, mentors and IAC-INFAS leaders participating in monthly shared readings and discussions. In the upcoming 2021-22 academic year we will have 5 Native American graduate students in the program. See more details and meet the new fellows: IAC-INFAS Tribal Fellowship Program (ITFP).
This collaboration with IAC builds on an INFAS-led pilot program in 2017-18 that offered fellowships to three graduate students studying food systems at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). Learn more about the HBCU fellows and their groundbreaking work.
