Grant Description
Fellowships to USA faculty and staff at Tribal IHEs and school districts for summer training programs addressing food production. Applicants should work in research and education relating to agriculture and food production. Applicants must be faculty or staff at 1994 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), must be 1890 and 1862 staff, or must work at Bureau of Indian Education designated high schools.

This fellowship was initially developed for faculty and staff at 1994 land-grant tribal colleges and universities (TCUs). The fellowship has been broadened to include 1890 and 1862 land-grant staff working with Tribal producers and students and tribal high school faculty and staff. These fellowships target and address mutual areas of interest between supporters of Tribal agriculture and USDA to provide training about resources and opportunities available at USDA. This uniquely tailored experience brings together 1994 tribal land-grant faculty/staff and federal executives to address the spectrum of challenges faced in the development of a well-prepared American Indian and Alaska Native workforce. In addition, the fellowships offer the opportunity to develop collegial relationships with others in 1994 tribal land-grant colleges and universities and USDA through which collaboration and mutual learning can take place.

This fellowship is available to 1994 TCU faculty and staff, 1890 and 1862 staff working with Tribal producers and Indigenous students in the areas of agriculture, conservation, natural resource, science, or community development to broaden and deepen their understanding of USDA and to further advance the development of their school’s land-grant function. Additionally, this Fellowship is also open to Tribal high school faculty and staff.
