The African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) calls applications for One Planet Fellowship.


African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) works toward inclusive, agriculture-driven prosperity for the African continent by strengthening the production and dissemination of more gender-responsive agricultural research and innovation. Since 2008, AWARD has, through individually tailored two-year fellowships, worked to strengthen the research and leadership skills of African women in agricultural science, empowering them to contribute more effectively to alleviating poverty and increasing food security in sub-Saharan Africa. One Planet Fellowship is the initiative of AWARD that is investing in early-career scientists eager to develop climate adaptation solutions for African smallholder farmers.


The One Planet Fellowship seeks to build a vibrant, highly connected and intergenerational network of African and European scientists equipped to lead research on the multi-dimensional impacts of climate change on Africa’s agriculture and food systems while also identifying and developing innovative solutions to effectively respond to the challenges, needs, and priorities of diverse population groups across the continent.  In addition to that, the One Planet Fellowship invests in high-potential early career researchers from Africa and Europe and accelerates their scientific careers so that they are better able to develop relevant and gender-responsive climate adaptation solutions aimed at African smallholder farmers.
