The grants support student research in a developing country setting in-residence at an International Agricultural Research Center (IARC), or a qualifying National Agricultural Research System (NARS) unit. The application deadline is Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 11:59pm Eastern time. Subsequent rounds will be announced in early spring 2013.
