Deadline: April 30, 2019
Applications are open for the African Women in Agricultural Research and Development One Planet Fellowship 2019. The One Planet Fellowship seeks to build a vibrant, highly connected, and intergenerational network of African and European scientist leaders equipped to use a gender lens help Africa’s smallholder farmers adapt to a changing climate.
Inspired by the AWARD Fellowship Model, the USD 15 million five-year initiative seeks to invest in 600 agricultural scientists through three rounds of open competition. Selected candidates will participate in an intensive, non-residential, career acceleration process aimed at fostering leadership skills, strengthening scientific research skills including integrating gender into their research, and catalyzing research partnerships and networks.
Candidates who complete the three-year process will become One Planet Laureates.
All applicants for the One Planet Fellowship must:
- Be a citizen of one of the following countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, and Zambia;
- Be aged 40 years or less as of April 2019;
- Have attained a minimum education level of a bachelor’s degree;
