AWARE (Advancing Women in Agriculture through Research and Education) is a cross-cutting gender initiative formally established by the Office of International Programs, CALS (IP-CALS) in 2012 to ensure that gender is addressed across IP-CALS' entire portfolio of activities - from academics based at Cornell to research projects being carried out in the developing world that serve women farmers and improve their families' livelihoods. This initiative is built on the belief that focusing on women in agriculture as an underserved majority holds the greatest potential to improve food security, reduce poverty, and positively impact rural development in developing countries.

This grant provides up to $2,500 to support graduate student research that fits within the scope of the AWARE mission. Applications are due by December 20, 2017; please click on the link below for more information.
