What is the IAEFP and about the Program:?
The International Agricultural Education Fellowship Program (IAEFP) is founded in partnership with AgriCorps, and hosted at the Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture and Development. IAEFP is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS).
IAEFP trains and supports Fellows to become teachers abroad during the Ghana and Guatemala school year. These Fellows work in agriculture, and with students in their communities. These communities are selected as prime placement locations by IAEFP and our in-country partner, Humanitas Global. Fellows are trained thoroughly before and during their experience using AgriCorps established training programs.
