African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) is pleased to announce the second Call for the 2024 One Planet Fellowship Internship Program targeting young European scientists.

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.
