The GES Center is now recruiting candidates for the 2022 AgBioFEWS cohort, a National Science Foundation-funded graduate research training program offering Ph.D. candidates across multidisciplinary fields of study the opportunity to examine the science, policy, and public engagement aspects and impacts of Agricultural Biotechnology on Food, Energy, and Water.

We are focusing our recruiting efforts on students from historically underrepresented groups and those in the fields of social sciences and the humanities but we welcome applications from all interested parties, including national and international students and those in the natural sciences fields.

Program Fellows receive a Ph.D. in a natural/social science, or humanities graduate program, and a graduate minor in Genetic Engineering and Society, and will

  • Receive two years of $34,000 NSF-funded stipends, with continuing funding provided by their graduate programs
  • Embark on their studies embedded with NC farms, with later opportunities for international internships
  • Collaborate on an interdisciplinary cohort project
  • Take advanced interdisciplinary graduate courses and incorporate AgBioFEWS into thesis
