Diversity of talents

Terra Isara aims to facilitate access to higher education in agriculture, food and environmental studies, to any motivated and competent young person, whatever their origin and financial means. This approach also applies to international students wishing to train in agroecology and sustainable food systems so as to be able to develop innovative and specific models in their countries. The fund is therefore also an instrument to actively endorse a process of solidarity and social openness.

How to finance his studies ? Testimony of Phoebe, Californian MSc Agroecology student.

I feel supported in my training. The school is listening to the specific situations and needs of students. When I go looking for my internships, pay is no longer the priority, I can really focus on choosing the most enriching projects.
