Welcome to the Borlaug Higher Education for Agricultural Research and Development (BHEARD) Program

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) in Mexico, selected Michigan State University (MSU) to implement the Feed the Future Borlaug Higher Education for Agricultural Research and Development (BHEARD) Program.

Honoring the legacy of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Norman Borlaug, this is a major effort to increase the number of agricultural scientists and strengthen scientific institutions in developing countries. The program will support long-term training of agricultural researchers at the master’s and doctoral levels and will link scientific and higher education communities in Feed the Future countries and the United States.
