Food Security Center Excellence Scholarships

The Food Security Center (FSC) has announced its call for this year’s Excellence Scholarships for full PhD (37 months) and Short-term Scholarships (up to 3 months) for visiting postdoctoral researchers and Sandwich program (both MS and PhD) students.

The FSC is based at the University of Hohenheim and is one of five excellence centers of the EXCEED program supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funding from the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany.

The Excellence Scholarships is open for students from developing countries who are interested to pursue the PhD program on Global Food Security at the University of Hohenheim starting September 1, 2015. On the other hand, the Short-term Scholarships will support outstanding researchers from developing countries to conduct their research either at the University of Hohenheim (South-North) or at a national or international research institute in a developing country, such as one of the CGIAR centers (South-South).

The application deadline for both categories is July 6, 2015. For other details and application forms, please refer to the appropriate link at https://fsc.uni-hohenheim.de/77676?&L=1.
