Purdue University’s Center for Global Food Security is now accepting applications from U.S. graduate students for the 2015 U.S. Borlaug Fellows in Global Food Security Program, funded through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Two Ohio State graduate students – Patrick Bell (School of Environment and Natural Resources) and Anna Testen (Plant Pathology) – were recipients of the program’s 2013 graduate research grant, which provided valuable funding for the research they conducted with international agricultural research centers.
