Global Food Initiative
The UC President’s Global Food Initiative Student Fellowship Program funds student-generated research, related projects or internships that focus on food issues. All 10 UC campuses plus UC Agriculture and Natural Resources and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are participating in the program. The program began in fall 2014, with the fellows participating in an April 2015 tour of an organic peach farm near Fresno and a July 2015 symposium in San Francisco. The second class of fellows was announced in 2015 participated in an April 2016 tour of an organic farm northwest of Sacramento and a June 2016 symposium in Fullerton. The third class of fellows was announced in 2016 and we recently announced our fourth class of cohorts in June 2017. The program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, and administered at each location to ensure that student efforts align with local needs.
