by: Iola Bonggay
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture, more commonly referred to as NIFA, is a United States federal government agency operating under the Department of Agriculture that is primarily responsible for consolidating all federally-funded agricultural research studies.
The establishment of NIFA was mandated under the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 in an attempt to initiate and enable technological innovations that have the potential to improve American agriculture, thus make it more productive, environmentally sustainable, and economically viable.
In accordance with this mission, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture has recently constituted the Higher Education Challenge Grants Program in an attempt to boost and enhance the quality of formal, postsecondary-level agricultural sciences education.
The projects that will be funded under this program are those that mean to work towards ensuring a competent, eligible, and diverse system that would be beneficial to the food and agricultural sciences industry.
In that context, the National Institute Food and Agriculture also wants the proposed projects to achieve the following goals:
a) Substantially increase the number of students who are willing to pursue and complete a postsecondary degree in the food and agricultural sciences.
