Improved soil fertility management in Africa may be delivered and adopted more quickly if innovative ideas are submitted to the Fellowship.
The Fellowship will help fund initiatives aimed at enhancing the efficiency with which plant nutrients are used and communicated in African agro-ecosystems. An integrated, multi-faceted strategy for soil fertility management is needed to achieve economic, environmental, and social objectives. These aims are too frequently disregarded in educational outreach.

The Purpose and Advantages of the Outreach Fellowship
For two scientists or extension experts working in an African NARES (National Agricultural Research and Extension System) institution, an African university, a nonprofit organization, or the corporate sector, the African Plant Nutrition Outreach Fellowship offers up to two $5,000 scholarships.
Anyone working in a research or education capacity at an African NARES institution or African university or non-profit organization in Africa may apply for this fellowship opportunity.
In order to speed up the delivery and implementation of better nutrient management in Africa, applicants are invited to propose innovative concepts that solve knowledge gaps or call for the integration of current information. Applicants must explain how they plan to utilize the grant money (such as to support travel, communication outreach, or training activities).
It will be seen favorably if there is evidence of cooperation and partnership. We strongly urge female applicants to apply.
Give an example of how the Fellowship will help spread the word about soil fertility management or help put it into practice. New projects, data analysis, communication tools, training sessions and trips will all be described here. Be as specific as possible to allow readers to judge the work’s novelty, inventiveness, and potential effect.
Two letters of recommendation, one of which should be from the applicant’s supervisor, should be sent electronically. The sender’s name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address must be included on every correspondence.
A résumé that contains academic degrees and significant publications/communication products related to soil fertility management is required..
There will be an end-of-awards brief report that details how the grant monies were utilised to achieve project goals.
During the online application process, you will be needed to provide supporting documentation. Prepare electronic (PDF) copies of these papers in advance, since this is suggested.
