AWARD is a career-development program that equips top women agricultural scientists across sub-Saharan Africa to accelerate agricultural gains by strengthening their research and leadership skills through tailored fellowships. AWARD is a catalyst for innovations with high potential to contribute to the prosperity and well-being of African smallholder farmers, most of whom are women.
AWARD is generously supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, United States Agency for International Development, Agropolis Fondation, and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa. AWARD is a preferred service provider of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), and is hosted by the CGIAR’s World Agroforestry Centre.
The deadline for 2014 applications is August 9, 2013. More information here http://www.awardfellowships.org/the-award-fellowship/call-for-applications2013.html
