Master’s Thesis Scholarship Program
To strengthen capacities as well as better utilize research, GSSP proposes to initiate a program for supporting Master’s level thesis research. In addition to offering students resources and collaboration opportunities to build their research capabilities, the scholarship program aims to enhance the relevance of this body of research to improving the effectiveness of agricultural and rural development strategies in Ghana. An important aspect of this is to make researchers more accountable to stakeholders in the sector. Building these linkages between researchers and stakeholders will be an important part of the development of a local knowledge system being created as part of Ghana’s commitment to the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP). Those proposals that address regional issues and priority crops (maize, rice, and soybean) will be given preference. Please read the scholarship announcement for more details.
