BIIA’s Office of International Training (OIT) is the country’s preeminent international agricultural training program with significant experience in cooperative agreements, logistics, travel, and meeting coordination.  OIT coordinates, facilitates, and organizes training courses in varied agriculture and environmental disciplines by utilizing expertise from across TAMUS.

OIT is involved in a wide-array of training programs, however two programs in which OIT regularly engages is the United States Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (USDA/FAS) Cochran Fellowship Program (CFP) and the Norman E. Borlaug International Agricultural Science and Technology Fellowship Program (BFP). The CFP provides short-term technical training to participants from middle-income countries, emerging markets, and emerging democracies. The BFP provides training for scientists and researchers from developing and middle-income countries via a 6-12 week research training program and the Fellows work one-on-one with a mentor who is engaged with a U.S. University or research center.
