The Norman Borlaug Field Award For Field Research And Application
The Award 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. Named for Norman Borlaug, the founder of the World Food Prize, and endowed by the Rockefeller Foundation, the Award is presented every October by the World Food Prize Foundation. The Award will honor an individual who is working closely and directly “in the field” or at the production or processing levels with farmers, animal herders, fishers, or others in rural communities, in any discipline or enterprise across the entire food production, processing, or distribution chain. Criteria include persistence, innovation, communication, research/science, extension, education, application, leadership, and impact. Definitions of those criteria and other information can be found on the Web site.
