Leland International Hunger Fellows (Tentative Deadline)

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.

Terry B. Heled Travel & Research Grant

The winner of the Terry B. Heled Travel & Research Grant will receive $2,000 toward the costs of travel for research that will lead to a significant writing project.  The travel and research will be conducted during the summer (between mid-May and the end of August). Candidates who propose a trip of longer rather than shorter duration will be given priority, and candidates who propose to travel beyond North America will also get priority, but any travel plan—to any place, of any length—will receive serious consideration based on the quality of the project.
