About One Planet Fellowship
Applications are now open for the One Planet Fellowship to help build a vibrant, highly connected, and inter-generational network of African and European scientists equipped to use a gender lens to help Africa’s smallholder farmers adapt to a changing climate.

The One Planet Fellowship is an opportunity for African scientists to share their context-specific knowledge with European scientists, for emerging European scientists to gain valuable exposure to the context within which scientific research is conducted on the continent, and for established scientists from Europe and Africa to invest in building the next generation of climate scientists.

One Planet is inspired by the African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) Fellowship Model, One Planet Fellowship’s interventions target high potential scientists in a career acceleration process aimed at:

  • Fostering Leadership Skills
  • Strengthening Scientific Research Skills
  • Catalyzing Research Partnerships and Networks
  • It brings together an intergenerational network of scientists from across Africa and Europe
  • Strengthens the leadership skills of emerging climate scientists from both continents, and contributes towards building a robust pipeline of climate science leaders.

Algeria, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, and Zambia
