The African Fellows Programme

Pre-proposals can be submitted at any time and will be considered in the next closing date.

The Rothamsted International African Fellows Programme aims to provide problem-focused training in Europe for mid-career African scientists. The purpose of the programme is to assist in capacity building, institutional strengthening and knowledge transfer in order to find relevant solutions to the problems of achieving sustainable agricultural production, as well as improving rural development and conservation of biodiversity.

Fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis through an assessment panel and will normally be for periods of 6 months although they can vary from 4 to 12 months depending on the nature of the project. For more information take a look at the Rothamsted International website:
