News Program for Emerging Agricultural Research Leaders 2014

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation seeks proposals for agricultural research with the potential to increase the sustainable productivity of smallholder farmers in developing countries. Sustainable productivity includes tackling the underlying social and economic determinants of productivity, such as gender equity, environmental issues, and healthy, diverse diets.  With this call, we are looking for projects led by MSc and PhD scientists at national agricultural research institutions and universities in sub-Saharan Africa, working in collaboration with other researchers internationally (either within Africa or beyond the continent).  The 2014 PEARL call is restricted to proposals relevant to staple crops grown in Africa (please note we hope to offer future competitive opportunities for livestock research, but livestock-related proposals will not be considered in the current call).

We will NOT consider funding for:

Proposals in which the lead PI is not based at a national agricultural research institution or university in sub-Saharan Africa;Proposals without an international collaboration;Proposals that are not directly relevant to agricultural systems in sub-Saharan Africa;Proposals that are not applicable to one or more of the following crop species: maize, wheat, rice, millet, sorghum, cassava, sweet potatoes, yams, beans, cowpeas, chickpeas, groundnuts, and banana;Improvements to current regulated chemicals or the development of new chemical formulations that would be considered regulated chemicals;Proposals where it is unclear who is the principal investigator. While the project team may consist of multiple partners, PEARL pre-proposals need to clearly identify an individual leader/principal investigator (PI). Each lead PI may submit only one pre-proposal, however individual scientists may participate as supporting partners on more than one application.

Please carefully provide the information required in the online application. We will inform only the primary applicant of our decision, and our emails will be sent to the primary email address provided in your application. We will not communicate with anyone other than the primary applicant regarding an application.
