     Vavilov-Frankel Fellowships 1998
     IPGRI has established the Vavilov-Frankel Fellowship Fund to 
     commemorate the unique contributions to plant science by Academician 
     Nikolai Ivanovich Vavilov and Sir Otto Frankel.
     The Fund aims to encourage the conservation and use of plant genetic 
     resources in developing countries through awarding Fellowships to 
     outstanding young scientists.
     The Fund will enable them to carry out relevant, innovative research 
     outside their own country for a period of between three months and one 
     year. The research should have a clear benefit to the applicant's home 
     country.  Awards can be held concurrently with other sources of 
     support. In 1998, a total of US$30,000 will be available for awards, 
     which are intended to cover travel, stipend, bench fees, equipment, 
     conference participation or any other appropriate use.  Holders are 
     encouraged to present the results of their research at an 
     international conference. This can take place within one year of 
     termination of the Fellowship.
     Applications for 1998 are invited from developing country nationals, 
     aged 35 or under, holding a higher degree in a relevant subject area. 
     Application forms may be obtained from:  Vavilov-Frankel Fellowships, 
     IPGRI, Via delle Sette Chiese 142, 00145 Rome, Italy. (Fax 39 6 
     5750309; Email: e.clancy@cgnet.com) and should be returned to this 
     Applications, preferably in English (or accompanied by an English 
     translation), should include a completed application form, brief 
     letter of application, full curriculum vitae, research proposal 
     (maximum 1000 words) and letter of acceptance from the proposed host 
     institute.  The closing date for receipt of applications is 31 
     December 1997.  The successful applicants will be informed by 31 March 
     1998 and are required to take up their Fellowships before 31 December

     research centres which operate under the umbrella of the Consultative 
     Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).  IPGRI is the
