International Plant Genetic Resources Institute

Vavilov-Frankel Fellowships 2000

IPGRI has established the Vavilov-Frankel Fellowship Fund to commemorate the
unique contributions to plant science by Academician Nikolai Ivanovich
Vavilov and Sir Otto Frankel.  The Fund aims to encourage the conservation
and use of plant genetic resources in developing countries through awarding
Fellowships to outstanding young scientists.

The Fellowships will enable the scientists to carry out relevant, innovative
research outside their own country for a period of between three months and
one year. The research should have a clear benefit to the applicant's home
country.  Awards can be held concurrently with other sources of support.  In
2000, a total of US$30,000 will be available for awards, which are intended
to cover travel, stipend, bench fees, equipment, conference participation or
any other appropriate use.  Holders are encouraged to present the results of
their research at an international conference.  This can take place within
one year of termination of the Fellowship.

Applications for the year 2000 are invited from developing-country
nationals, aged 35 or under, holding a masters degree (or equivalent) and/or
doctorate in a relevant subject area.  Application forms in English, French
and Spanish may be obtained from:  Vavilov-Frankel Fellowships, IPGRI, Via
delle Sette Chiese 142, 00145 Rome, Italy [Fax: (39)065750309 or Email:
e.clancy at cgiar.org or http://www.cgiar.org/ipgri/institute/vavilov.htm ] and
should be returned to that address.

Applications must be in English, French or Spanish and should include a
covering letter, completed application form, full curriculum vitae, research
proposal (maximum 1000 words which should include a clear statement of
objectives, methodology, materials and justification) and letter of
acceptance from the proposed host institute.  The closing date for receipt
of applications is 30 November 1999.  The successful applicants will be
informed by 31 March 2000 and are required to take up their Fellowships
before 31 December 2000.

IPGRI is an institute of the Consultative Group on International
Agricultural Research (CGIAR).
