Griffith Announces $238,500 U.S. Department of Agriculture Grant to Virginia Tech

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) has awarded Virginia Tech $238,500 in Food and Ag Sciences National Needs Graduate and Post-grad Fellowship Grants. Virginia Tech plans to use the grant money to steer three graduate students towards the completion of their doctoral degree and eventual placement in industry or research positions in the field of Animal Science and Production.

“This $238,500 grant awarded to Virginia Tech by the U.S. Department of Agriculture is great news as it will help three students finish their doctoral degrees and pursue a career in Animal Science and Production, a field that is in need of greater attention given an increasing demand for animal protein worldwide.”
