This program is generously funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with the aim to boost the number of future leaders and decision-makers who have the scientific base needed to effectively study and promote sustainable food systems. The grants support student research in a developing country setting in-residence at an International Agricultural Research Center (IARC), or a qualifying National Agricultural Research System (NARS) unit. The application deadline is Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 11:59pm Eastern time. Subsequent rounds will be announced in early spring 2013.
