The GRGs are the primary focus of the RUFORUM CGS and, since inception of Forum, over 300 grants have been awarded and successfully completed with well-recognised research outputs and some 600 M.Sc graduates.
The GRG currently provides two-year grants of up to US$60,000 each. These are awarded to an individual senior lecturer of a member university to support agricultural action research and the training of two graduate students. Member universities send in project proposals in response to a call and these proposals undergo a rigorous review and selection process.
Each grant is provided to enable at least two M.Sc students to obtain their degrees and to complete field research under the joint supervision of a Principal Investigator and an interdisciplinary and multi-agency team.
With the support of a range of donors, primarily the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and on research on cross-border diseases from the Rockefeller Foundation, RUFORUM is currently mentoring and monitoring some 46 GRG projects.
Deadline for submission: 30 March
