Call for Applications
African women working in agricultural research and development from Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia who have completed a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree in selected disciplines are invited to apply.
African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD), a project of the CGIAR Gender & Diversity Program, is now accepting applications for its 2010 fellowships.
AWARD offers tailored, two-year fellowships designed to fast-track the careers of African women scientists and professionals delivering pro-poor agricultural research and development that benefits rural communities, especially women. Our goal is to help them increase their contributions in the fight against hunger and poverty in sub-Saharan Africa.
The AWARD Fellowships include a series of career development resources designed to:
• strengthen science/professional skills;
• augment leadership abilities;
• enhance visibility and networking; and
• increase opportunities to share newly acquired skills, inspiring the next generation of African women agricultural researchers and professionals.
We warmly invite applications from African women in the following disciplines:
Animal and livestock sciences
Aquatic resources and fisheries
Food sciences and nutrition
Forestry and agroforestry
Molecular biology (plant/animal breeding)
Natural resources management
Water and irrigation management
Some 60-70 African women professionals in agricultural research and development who hold a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree will be chosen. Applicants must be nationals of the above listed countries and be available in Africa throughout the fellowship period.
The deadline for all applications is March 22, 2010.
