FAS Diversity Fellowship Program

FAS is investing in the future by creating a path for outstanding students, particularly those from minority groups historically under-represented at USDA, to pursue careers in the U.S. Foreign Service. The program will help ensure that FAS Foreign Service officers, who serve American agriculture at U.S. embassies and diplomatic missions around the globe, reflect the diversity that is the strength of the United States.

The FAS Diversity Fellowship Program, administered in partnership with Howard University, provides funding and support for selected students to receive master’s degrees in Agribusiness or Agricultural Economics from the accredited U.S. university of their choice. Fellows will participate in domestic and overseas internships with FAS, will be offered extensive mentoring and professional development opportunities, and, upon successful completion of the program, will become part of the FAS Foreign Service corps.
