The African Plant Nutrition Research Fund (APNRF) has opened its call for preliminary, small, yet strategically targeted proposals to be considered for the 2022 round of funding. To be eligible, the lead applicant (Principal Investigator) must be from an African National Agricultural Research and Extension System (NARES) institution or African university. Students are not eligible for this award.
The proposed work must be primarily performed in Africa and all the work must be relevant to African agriculture. Funding can be requested for targeted topical research, new trials, or to leverage expansion or additional data collection for existing trials. Other topics related to socio-economics or data science also qualify for funding as long as they directly support at least one of the three research themes. Proposals that leverage other funding sources are strongly encouraged. Partnerships with other African or international organizations will be viewed favorably.
Preliminary concept proposals, written in English or French, must be received prior to the posted deadline of April 30, 2022.
Applications are received through the website. Additional details are available at this site.
