The purpose of the Kirchner Food Fellowship program is to foster the development of individuals who have the practical skills and knowledge to make effective investments in emerging agricultural technologies that have the possibility of addressing global food security.
The Kirchner Food Fellowship is an opportunity for a group of students to receive hands-on investment training focused on food/agriculture businesses with ground-breaking technologies, providing long-term sustainable solutions, both environmentally and economically, to food security.

They must be self-motivated, hard-working and possess a passion for investing in promising early-stage, for-profit, socially-responsible agricultural companies that will ultimately bring closer the day when everyone on the planet has reliable access to healthy food.
