The fellowship program seeks to contribute to policy development on youth engagement in agribusiness and rural economic activities in Africa. It is designed to provide opportunities for the youth by improving the availability and use of evidence for inclusive and “youth friendly” policies on youth engagement in agribusiness and rural economic activities. The fellows will be provided by providing them with funding, technical support and the expertise of IITA’s socio-economics scientists, skills and competencies in social and economic research, and a network of other fellows with whom to exchange ideas.

This is not a one-time invitation for applications, but rather a continuing call for research on this topic till 2020.
