The Embassy Science Fellows Program places USDA scientists at American embassies overseas to provide expertise, advice, and assistance with issues relating to the environment, science, technology, and health. Since the program’s inception in 2002, FAS has sponsored more than 40 fellows in 25 countries to work in areas of strategic importance to USDA, including trade capacity building, biotechnology, food safety, animal health, and sanitary/phytosanitary issues.
