The World Food Prize Foundation invites nominations for the Borlaug Field Award. The USD 10,000 award, endowed by the Rockefeller Foundation, recognizes science-based achievement in international agriculture and food production by an individual under age 40 who has clearly demonstrated intellectual courage, stamina, and determination in the fight to eliminate global hunger and poverty. The award will honor an individual who is working closely and directly “in the field” or at the production or processing level with farmers, animal herders, fishers or others in rural communities, in any discipline or enterprise across the entire food production, processing, and distribution chain. Nominations must be submitted online in English. Self-nominations will not be processed.
