VIPP is proud to support MSU colleges and departments in the administration of federal government programs such as the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) Cochran Fellowship program, USDA Foreign Agricultural Service/ Faculty Exchange Program, USDA Borlaug Fellowship, and US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. We play various roles in these competitive programs, providing logistical support, program delivery, or both. MSU departments, colleges and research centers that are in the process of bringing international visitors to campus or working on grant proposals for training, capacity building or logistic support can turn to us for our expertise.
So far VIPP has collaborated with the College of Veterinary Medicine; the Departments of Food Science and Human Nutrition and Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences; and the School of Journalism.
