Kirchner Food Fellowship Program

Posted: March 13, 2015

The purpose of the Kirchner Food Fellowship program is to foster the development of students who have the practical skills and knowledge to make effective investments in emerging agricultural technologies that have the possibility of addressing global food security.

The Fellows have full discretion over their investment fund during a unique learning experience. A Fellowship may be held by a student currently enrolled at any university in North America. The Kirchner Food Fellows will be selected by June 30th, 2015 with the program commencing in August. “While getting my MBA, no other experience has afforded me such a unique opportunity to get firsthand experience allocating capital as a way to drive positive change in our food systems. The Kirchner Food Fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that has the power to change both your career path and the world around you." - Erin Lenhardt, Kirchner Food Fellow and MBA student at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
