DEADLINE: December 31, 2017
The Climate, Food and Farming Network GRA Development Scholarships (CLIFF-GRADS) program invites applications from students from developing countries currently enrolled in PhD programs for short-term scientific training and research stays on topics related to measurement and management of greenhouse gas emissions and carbon storage in agricultural systems.
Applicants should have a background in agriculture and climate change research and be pursuing graduate research related to agricultural greenhouse gas quantification.
Selected students will be sponsored in the amount of 10,000-12,000 USD for short-term (4-6 month) scientific training and research stays to collaborate with projects associated with CCAFS and GRA. Specific topics will depend on the student’s and host institution scientists’ interests. A list of projects seeking to host students is included below under “List of research opportunities.”
The grants will be used to support living and research costs at the host institution. Grants may not be used for tuition or unrelated personal expenses.
CLIFF-GRADS is a joint initiative of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change (CCAFS) and the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA).
