FUNDING: IFAR’S Professional Development Program 2011
IFAR is a results-oriented foundation that supports partnerships, collaboration, and awards as a means of fostering scientific excellence in agriculture and related fields.
IFAR’s mission is to:
- Recognize and promote scientific excellence involving the work of international agricultural research centers (CGIAR Centers) supported by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and their partners.
- Promote science through professional development.
- Give priority to Africa and South Asia.
In support of its mission, 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 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.
