YOU MAY RECEIVE UP TO $7500 FOR WORK ON ANY SUBJECT RELATED TO RICE IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD
GRRF annually grants up to US $7,500 per scholar for travel, scientific research, education, or artistic work about rice in developing rice-producing countries. You must be a student or scholar (of any nationality) registered at an accredited U.S. university or college and have a letter of support from a member of your school’s faculty. Creative artists must illustrate their qualifications. You must provide a full project budget and tell us where you will get additional funds beyond the US $7,500 if your proposed work requires them.
Given the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, GRRF awards may be used for laboratory- or library-based research in a US institution (other than where the student is registered full-time) that has special competence in an area related to rice.
GRRF encourages applications that involve travel to and study at US or developing country institutions. Applicants who would like GRRF’s assistance with identifying institutions and researchers in such locations who might be open to hosting students with their interests should make that request on their application.
Applications are evaluated based on clarity of the proposal, the likely contribution to furthering knowledge of rice science, potential of applicant to become an outstanding professional, strength of the linkage with a collaborator or mentor in the rice world, the likely benefit to the applicant from the collaboration.
Submit your application by email to email@example.com within the deadlines listed below; the winners of awards will be informed within one month.
