Mozambique Scientists Out to Prove Women Can Set a New Course for Agriculture in their Country and Beyond

Eleven women scientists in Mozambique were selected from among hundreds of applicants from 10 sub-Saharan countries as fellows of the African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) project. Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID, the project strengthens scientists' research and leadership skills to build up the talent pool of highly skilled African women in agricultural research and development.
