INFAS Graduate Fellows Programs (IGFP)
INFAS has supported two pilot graduate fellowship programs. In the 2020-2021 academic year, we are partnering with the Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) to support 11 Native American graduate students working in food systems. It includes 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. See more details about this pilot and, we hope, inaugural year of the 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.
