Leland International Hunger Fellows

The Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellows Program trains emerging leaders in the fight to end hunger worldwide.  It is a unique two-year program that combines field and policy work.  Leland Fellows develop new skills while actively working to alleviate hunger and poverty in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.  During the first year, fellows work directly to build food security in the field.  In the second year, fellows apply their field experience to the design of sound development policy at the organizational, national, and international level.

Deadline: January 10, 2023 (TENTATIVE) (for the 2023-2025 Leland International Hunger Fellows cohort)
