During the first year, fellows work directly to build food security in the field. In the second year, fellows apply their field experience to the design of sound development policy at the organizational, national, and international level.


In addition to their field and policy work, fellows take part in annual CHC-sponsored training sessions and a range of professional development activities aimed at further adding to their skills and expertise.


The Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellows Program develops emerging leaders committed to improving the food and nutrition security of people worldwide. It is a unique two-year program that combines field and policy work experience with cohort learning and professional development. The 9th class of Fellows, will serve from Oct. 1, 2017-August 31, 2019.
