In support of its mission, International Fund for Agricultural Research (IFAR) annually provides small grants to professionals from national agricultural research systems in developing countries (NARS). Nominations for these awards must be sponsored by one or more CGIAR Center’s (http://www.cgiar.org/ for a full list of Centers), and the work programs proposed by applicants must be closely linked with the program of a CGIAR Center. Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with Center scientists when preparing their project proposals for submission to IFAR.
Applications should be from individual scientists. However, a proponent may wish to collaborate with other proponents, creating synergies through team work. The value of the individual grant (up to $11,000) will not change in these circumstances. Proposal deadline: March 3, 2008
