Our Thomas Wyatt Turner Fellowship supports graduate students from 1890 institutions to become next-generation leaders in inclusive and sustainable agricultural development through a robust mentorship program and technical training at Cornell University.
The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Crop Improvement Thomas Wyatt Turner Fellowship seeks to increase the number of women, LBGTQ+ and students from underrepresented backgrounds engaging in research and capacity development activities in inclusive and sustainable agricultural development.
With principles of diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility at its core, the Fellowship supports students from underrepresented backgrounds while developing culturally responsive research mentors at participating universities.
By building equitable and mutually beneficial relationships with 1890 institutions, we can draw on the strengths of those institutions, giving us an opportunity to expand human capital and technical expertise in fields related to inclusive and sustainable agricultural development.
