Apply for a Kirchner Food Fellowship!

Are you interested in the combination of business and agriculture? Do you want to become a leader in the fight against food insecurity? If this sounds like you, the Kirchner Food Fellowship may be your next step.

Initiated by the Kirchner Group, the 16-week fellowship program engages select student leaders in virtual and real-world investment experiences. Through mentorships and practical application, fellows learn the challenges and benefits of investing in agriculture technology that furthers food security.

Chosen student leaders will be the face of change as the relationship between businesses and food security evolves. They will focus on agriculture-oriented business and technology in order to create worldwide solutions, with emphases on environmental and economic factors.

If you are interested in becoming a Kirchner Food Fellow, the application is now open and will be due on April 15.  For more information, please visit
