22.03.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

The International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) and CGIAR Research Program on Wheat have launched a call for applications for the first edition of the Arab Women Leaders in Agriculture (Awla) fellowship program for women researchers from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia, who are passionate about innovation in agriculture, food security and nutrition.

Awla’ first cycle is about “The role of women in agriculture prosperity", opening doors for Arab women researchers to strengthen their intellectual collaboration by exchanging ideas and good practices on the difference women can make in agriculture. With that objective, Awla is looking for candidates with demonstrable interest in national, international and global agricultural challenges, and are willing to boost their skills and knowledge through various channels of structured and applied learning on team-based projects.

The fellowship aims to advocate a transformation in agricultural research and development in the MENA region, powered by women. For that purpose, Awla plans to initiate collaborative solutions for driving positive change in agriculture, food security and nutrition by creating platforms that showcase women’s capability and contribution.

Furthermore, Awla has the priority to raise awareness about organizational gender dynamics, shift attitudes around gender perceptions and take part in the creation of a gender responsive culture and inclusive and enabling environment.

Do not miss this unique opportunity and present your candidature through their website no later than 15th April 2019 and join the first network of Arab Women Researchers.
