The Bentley Cropping Systems Fellowship: The Bentley Cropping Systems Fellowship is as a result of a bequest from Helen S. Bentley and C. Fred Bentley.

You can study for MA, PhD or Post Doc in any African country or Canada.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a graduate program (Master’s, doctoral, post-doctoral) at a recognized university in Canada or in a developing country for the duration of the award period.
