Are you a doctoral student from and doing your Ph.D. in the Global South?

Are you doing research around measurement, modeling quantification and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, or carbon storage in agricultural systems relevant to developing countries?

Are you looking for paid research stays?

If you say yes to all of the above, we have an opportunity for you.

The Climate, Food and Farming, Global Research Alliance Development Scholarships Programme, otherwise known as CLIFF-GRADS, is now open to receive applications for its sixth round of fellowships.

CLIFF-GRADS is a joint initiative of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse
Gases and the CGIAR Initiative on Research for Low-Emission Food Systems. It aims to 
build the capacity of early-career scientists from low- and middle-income countries to undertake applied research in agriculture greenhouse gas emission quantification and mitigation.

The fellowship involves a grant of USD 14,000 and a research stay that spans four to six months. There are 61 advertised research stays, up to three of which each applicant can express interest in.

The window for applications will close on 28 August 2023. Click here to apply for R6 CLIFF-GRADS fellowships.
