Fellowships and Awards
Deepening development expertise
IDRC’s Fellowships and Awards program supports Canadians, permanent residents of Canada, and citizens of developing countries to acquire more practical and research-oriented knowledge.
From graduate students conducting applied research with African farmers to scholars studying environmental issues facing the urban poor, IDRC funding is helping to create a generation of researchers in Canada and in developing countries with enhanced skills, deeper knowledge, a broader world view, and greater experience.
