 USDA Selects 2017 Class of E. Kika De La Garza Fellows

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced the 18 fellows of the 2017 class of the E. Kika De La Garza Fellowship Program. Their selection was based on the compatibility of their interests with USDA mission areas, as well as the value their experiences will add to their institutions' educational capacities. Most of the fellows are working at HACU-member institutions (noted in bold). HACU staff members from the Washington, D.C. office attended the 2017 Kika de la Garza Fellows Recognition ceremony.
