Each year Cochran training topics are developed by USDA overseas offices that support the country strategy.  A targeted recruitment process is then undertaken that identifies promising public and private sector candidates with the requisite background who can benefit from this targeted Cochran training.  These candidates are then encouraged to submit Cochran applications.

 

rogram participation is open to the staff of agribusinesses, government departments, universities, and other agricultural organizations.  In their own countries, applicants may be managers, technicians, scientists, professors, administrators, or policy makersAll participants must be in good health.  Applicants are required to have a thorough physical exam prior to traveling to the United States, as well as a medical letter stating he/she is fit to travel.  Participants who are proficient in the oral and written usage of the English language are preferred. 

 

 

 

Applications are obtained from and submitted to the country's nearest FAS Agricultural Affairs officer, whose contact information can be found on the USDA/FAS Overseas Offices Page. Applications are required to be completed in English (preferably typed).  The officer conducts an initial screening of applications to determine whether the proposed study program is appropriate and is consistent with the country strategy.  The application must include a detailed description of the specific training requested by the applicant.
