International Scholars

The International Research & Agricultural Development office coordinates fellowship experiences for foreign scholars working with departments across campus. Since 2004, WSU has hosted scientists and scholars from developing countries, providing opportunities in professional development and collaborative research with top scientists and practitioners in many disciplines. The goals of the program are to foster lasting relationships between U.S. citizens and their colleagues in other countries, foster global development in agriculture and other disciplines, and strengthen international experiences among WSU faculty and graduate programs.

Focusing on strengthening sustainable agriculture, Washington State University works with the Norman E. Boraug Fellowship Program to provide scientific training to visiting researchers, policymakers, and university faculty. Participating fellows have received funding from the Borlaug Foundation and the USDA Foreign Agricultural Services (FAS).

In addition to the Borlaug Fellowship Program, Washington State University has also worked with the Cochran Fellowship Program. The Cochran Program usually consists of two weeks study tours and often have farmers and representatives from industry participating.
