The Norman E. Borlaug Leadership Enhancement in Agriculture Program (Borlaug LEAP) is a fellowship program, funded by USAID to enhance the quality of thesis research of graduate students from developing countries who show strong promise as leaders in the field of agriculture and related disciplines. LEAP is part of the overall Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellows Program sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The Borlaug LEAP Fellowship supports engaging a mentor at a Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) system center to support and enhance the thesis research and mentoring experience. Awards are made on a competitive basis to students who show strong scientific and leadership potential, have a well coordinated proposal between their home university, a US university mentor, and the CGIAR mentor, and whose research is related to a strong research and support project within the host country. Emphasis is placed on work that has relevance to the national development of the student's home country.

Currently there are two limited release Request for Applications (RFAs):

  1. Applications are requested for sub-Saharan African students conducting research on topics related to USAID's Feed the Future: Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative.  The focus region is sub-Saharan Africa.  All topics related to agriculture (as defined by Title XII) and food security are admissible.
  2. Applications are requested for developing country students conducting research in partnership with CRSPs (Collaborative Research Support Programs).  The focus region is global.  All topics related to agriculture (as defined by Title XII) and CRSP priorities are admissible.
