Charlie Farber, 3rd-year graduate student, was one of 23 students in the U.S. who was awarded the FFAR fellowship, beginning in the fall. The FFAR Fellows Program was established to provide professional development and career guidance to the next generation of food and agriculture scientists across the Foundation for Food and Agriculture’s Challenge Areas and strategic initiatives. The program provides early career support to graduate students and industry peers to equip students with the skills needed to facilitate their transition to the workforce and prepare future leaders for food and agriculture. Fellows will be co-mentored over the 3-year program by the university and industry representatives and engage with their peers in professional development programming both virtually and at the annual one-week residential sessions. Congratulations, Charlie!
