The New Harvest Fellowship Grant is for forward-thinking graduate or postdoctoral researchers in cellular agriculture who want to be leaders in the field. The fellowship provides dedicated research funding, an international support system, and leadership opportunities. Beyond just research funding, the overarching goal is to empower future technical leaders in the field.
Established in 2015, the New Harvest Fellowship seeks to address two major challenges in the field: a lack of specific talent and knowledge. The program has funded 28 Fellows to date.
The Fellowship has funded the world's first cultured meat PhDs, led to 50+ peer-reviewed publications, and laid the groundwork for cell ag research institutes around the world.
New Harvest alumni have co-founded companies, won government grants, and mentored dozens of students. They comprise the cellular agriculture vanguard.
When we started the New Harvest Fellowship, nothing like it existed in this field. Training opportunities for students interested in cellular agriculture were close to non-existent.
Recently, we’ve been increasingly approached by other funders looking to provide training opportunities in cell ag and other fields. In the spirit of open sharing, we’re made these resources open for anyone! These documents cover our approach, the application process, and the nitty gritty details of how it runs. We hope these resources help other organizations interested in funding early-stage researchers in novel fields get grant programs off the ground!
We are not accepting applications for the Fellowship at this time.
