The Vavilov-Frankel Fellowships Fund aims to encourage the conservation and use of plant genetic resources in developing countries by awarding Fellowships to outstanding young researchers to carry out relevant innovative research at an advanced research institute outside their own country for a period of between three months and one year.
The Fellowships are supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), Australia and Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., United States, a DuPont Company.
The closing date for this year's Fellowships is 6 November 2006.
Announcements, application forms and guidelines for preparation of research proposals are also available from IPGRI's web site http://www.ipgri.cgiar.org/training/vavilov.htm.
