The objective of this study is to summarize the HEP graduate fellowship program in the national need area of management and marketing. The fellowships are the most prestigious in the agricultural sciences in the United States and the monetary amount of the fellowship is the highest in the agricultural sciences at $22,000 per year. Almost 40 percent of all graduated fellows are currently employed in academic positions in the United States and are represented on the faculty of 27 universities. This program could serve as a model for other countries that seek to develop similar fellowships for the purpose of creating a cadre of leaders within agribusiness management. It is important that qualified fellows be recruited, trained, and graduated from doctoral programs that have demonstrated success in training students in the national need of management and marketing.
