The International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) and Corteva Agriscience, the Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, are seeking applications for a program to provide professional development, leadership training and networking opportunities to agricultural journalists from developing countries.

The program, the IFAJ/Corteva Agriscience Master Class, will meet near Wageningen, The Netherlands, from 7 to 9 July, 2018, immediately prior to the 2018 IFAJ World Congress, which will draw participants from around the world to The Netherlands from 11 to 15 July.

“We are excited and proud to continue our support of the IFAJ’s Master Class Program, which offers agricultural journalists from around the world a top-notch professional development curriculum,” said Gregg Schmidt, Head of External Communications at Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont.  “The journalists that attend the program are such valuable stewards of messages that enhance the lives of those who produce and those who consume, ensuring progress for generations to come.”

 

2017 Master Class participants participate in farm visits in South Africa.

Participants are agricultural journalists and communicators from developing countries that are not members of IFAJ (click here for a list of member guilds). They will be selected by an IFAJ panel on the basis of their agricultural journalism background, their interest in learning about agriculture, their potential as leaders in the industry, and geographic diversity.
