Apply for a FFAR Fellowship

Two categories of Fellowship are available:

  • Stipend + Professional Development Fellowship
  • Professional Development Fellowship

Stipend + Professional Development Fellowship

Students accepted into the Stipend + Professional Development category will receive $50,000 each year to cover tuition, fees, stipend, and related costs. Students applying to this category should already have a defined research project and an industry or analogous sponsor (e.g., grower organization, foundation). The sponsor will commit $32,500 per year to the Fellowship, matched equally by FFAR. The total $65,000 is distributed as follows: $50,000 for student stipend tuition, fees, etc.; $5,000 for university overhead; $10,000 is retained by the FFAR Fellowship Program lead institution, North Carolina State University, for program management and costs of the professional development training including annual residential session. Student applicants to this category should be enrolled or accepted into PhD programs at one of FFAR Fellows partner universities.

Professional Development Fellowship

Students accepted into the Professional Development category will be full members of the cohort and will receive support for professional development activities (valued at $10,000K/year). Students applying to this category should have a research or teaching assistantship, or other fellowship, to cover their tuition, stipend, and related costs. Professional Development category students should have a defined industry or analogous sponsor committed to providing $5,000 per year, with this amount matched by FFAR for the total $10,000/year. These funds are retained by the FFAR Fellowship Program lead institution, North Carolina State University, for program management and costs of the professional development training including annual residential session. Student applicants to this category should be enrolled or accepted by a PhD program at a U.S. or Canadian university.
