Future Leaders Program

Tomorrow’s agriculture depends on cultivating today’s students. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is sowing these seeds through the Future Leaders in Agriculture Program, coordinated through USDA’s Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement. Founded in 2007, the program introduces students at land-grant universities and Hispanic-serving institutions to the work of USDA and partner organizations.

Details of the 2023 Future Leaders Program will be announced at the end of October, 2022.

For more information, please contact Lisa Purnell, USDA Liaison, Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement at   

Students who are interested in scholarship, internship, and career opportunities at USDA can learn more at or contact their local USDA Liaison.
