Training and Travel Grants; Climate, Food and Farming Research Network opens call for scientific training of PhD students.

The Climate Food and Farming (CLIFF) Research Network invites applications from students from developing countries currently enrolled in PhD programs for short-term scientific training and research stays at CGIAR research centers.

Applicants should have a background in agriculture and climate change research and an interest in mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. We especially seek students with experience with crop-livestock systems.

Selected students will be sponsored for short-term (3-4 month) scientific training and research stays at CGIAR centers or affiliated research institutions in their home regions. (Scientific stays to non-CGIAR centers will be considered if justified.)

During their tenure at the host institutions, students will learn approaches used in the Standard Assessment of Mitigation Potential and Livelihoods in Smallholder Systems (SAMPLES) research program to evaluate options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from smallholder systems and the changes in productivity and livelihood indicators associated with alternative practices.

The techniques that may be studied include (but are not limited to) remote sensing, economic surveys, and measurement of greenhouse gas emissions. Topics will depend on student and host institution scientist interests.

Applications are invited for training and travel grants of up to 10,000 USD. The grants will be used to support living and research costs at the host institution for short stays (3-4 months).

It is important to note that these grants will not necessarily be to support participants’ own research, but to facilitate training on techniques and methods being applied in CCAFS research.

Application requirements

The application must include the following documents merged into one pdf file:

  • 1-2 page motivation letter (described below).
  • 1-page curriculum vitae that includes your contact details.
  • Letter of support from your university supervisor.

    The motivation letter, no more than two A4 pages, must include:

  • Your name, citizenship and the country where you are conducting your graduate study.
  • The objectives of your graduate study.
  • Linkages between your study and the SAMPLES program.
  • Any other relevant research experience.
  • Justification for the short-term scientific visit. How will scientific training with the SAMPLES program improve your graduate research?

    Eligibility and conditions

  • Applicants must be currently enrolled PhD students.
  • Applicants must be students from and conducting their research in a developing country. For this call, we include all countries NOT listed as “high income economies” in this World Bank database.
  • The grant money should be used to finance the short-term scientific visit, NOT tuition or other fees related to the degree.
  • Scientific visits must take place during in the next year.
