Fund a Fellow

Each year, the Cornell Alliance for Science Global Leadership Fellows Program gathers talented leaders from around the world to participate in a unique, 12-week training session on the Cornell campus. Guided by scientists, educators, policy experts, and their interactions with one another, the Fellows hone skills in grassroots organizing and communicating the science behind agricultural biotechnology.

Upon completing this intensive course, the Fellows become part of a global network, returning home to champion important issues like evidence-based agricultural policies, access to innovation, science education, food security, and sustainable farming.

The Fellows mobilize their communities to effect positive change and support our international training efforts. Together, we’re changing the conversation around agricultural biotechnology. Together, we’re making a real difference in people’s lives.

You can be a part of this dynamic initiative. Your tax-deductible gift can boost global food security, help smallholder farmers escape poverty, and reduce agriculture’s environmental footprint.
