International Development and Research Center (IDRC) -- Applied Research to Promote Fertility of Small Farms.

Canada's IDRC administers the Bentley Cropping Systems Fellowship for graduate students who wish to undertake on-farm research with cooperating farmers in one or more developing countries. The research should focus on the use of fertility-enhancing plants — such as leguminous forages, shrubs, cover crops, and grain legumes — on small farms. The program is open to Canadians (citizens and residents) and citizens of developing countries who are enrolled full-time for university studies at masters, doctoral, or post-doctoral levels. The award is up to CA$30 thousand. The application deadline is 01 October 2012. Link
