NIFA Invests $3.4M in Food and Ag Sciences National Needs Graduate and Postgrad Fellowship Grants Program

Food and Agricultural Sciences National Needs Graduate and Postgraduate Fellowship (NNF) Grants Program trains students for masters and/or doctoral degrees. Fellowships and Special International Study or Thesis/Dissertation Research Travel Allowances (IRTA) are specifically intended to support traineeship programs that encourage outstanding students to pursue and complete their degrees in areas where there is an identified national need for the development of scientific and professional personnel. Funds from the fellowships and IRTA awards are invested in graduate training and relevant international experiential learning. The NNF program provides funding to support graduate training through a student stipend and a cost-of-education allowance to the institution.
