Global Food Fellowship

With generous support from Yale Alumni, the Yale Sustainable Food Program’s Global Food Fellowship supports the extracurricular study of food systems. Interested students should propose a plan of study, research or internship project which is innovative, pursuing ideas that could overturn the ecological, social, and economic deficiencies of today’s predominant food system.  Priority will be given to projects which:

  • ​engage with a non-Yale community partner, and works with them to ensure the project meets an identified need
  • allow opportunity for hands-on practice, actively working to establish or operate a sustainable food enterprise
  • could support a long-term sustainable food career goal
  • connect with a curricular interest at Yale

Fellows will have access to YSFP’s staff and resources, but will primarily be self-directed. Social Media progress reports will be due for public posting throughout the summer months. A final deliverable will be discussed and assigned with Awardees on a case-by-case basis. Awards generally range from $500 to $3,000.
