The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) recognizes there are many outstanding contributions that our partners in the Land-Grant Universities and other cooperating institutions and organizations have achieved. To recognize these achievements, the Partnership Awards Program was established in 2007.
NIFA invites all Land-Grant Universities and cooperating institutions and organizations supported by NIFA to submit nominations for the 2023 NIFA Partnership Awards Program.
