The Vavilov-Frankel Fellowship Fund aims to encourage the conservation and use of plant genetic resources by awarding fellowships to outstanding young researchers from developing countries to carry out relevant innovative research at an advanced research institute outside their home country for a period of three months to one year.
The fellowships are supported by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., United States and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), Australia.
Bioversity International established the Fellowship Fund in 1989 to commemorate the unique contributions to plant science of Academician Nikolai Ivanovich Vavilov and Sir Otto Frankel. To date, 35 scientists from 23 developing countries have received awards. Read more about the history of the fund.
