BHEARD scholarships supported individuals' coursework at U.S. and regional universities and provided funding for research in their home countries.  

Additionally, BHEARD supported institutions for higher education and other agricultural research organizations in seven USAID Feed the Future countries to develop, test and evaluate new models of small-scale institutional capacity development. BHEARD prioritized institutional strengthening recognizing that sustainable solutions and novel research require strong institutions from which individuals are empowered to innovate.
