Mentoring programme - opportunities for young scientists



The Call for the One Planet Fellowship Internship Program for Emerging European Scientists

African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) is pleased to announce the Call for the One Planet Fellowship Internship Programs targeting young European scientists. The One Planet Fellowship is a career development initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), BNP Paribas Foundation with additional support from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the European Union (EU) Commission. The Fellowship, jointly implemented by AWARD and Agropolis Fondation, was created with the aim of building a dynamic, diverse, and highly connected network of African and European scientists equipped to lead cutting-edge research and innovation to help Africa’s small-scale farmers adapt to a changing climate.

The Internship Program offered by AWARD and Agropolis Fondation gives young European scientists an opportunity to experience the specific challenges, opportunities, and context of climate change and agricultural research in Africa. The programs allow them to acquire research field experience in a diverse African environment and broaden their perspectives of agriculture and food systems in varying landscapes. In addition, it is a great way to enhance networking and build collaborative working relations with other scientists at national, regional, and global stages to solve climate change issues which are, by nature, global.

The Call for the One Planet Fellowship Internship Programs opens on February 20, 2023, and closes at the end of March 2023. Application is strictly through the online portal.
