2018 is an exciting year for African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) as we mark a decade since the founding of our flagship initiative, the AWARD Fellowship. The last ten years have been remarkable, as together with our partners, we have worked to accelerate agricultural gains in Africa by investing in the continent’s leading women scientists. At the heart of our success has been the support and commitment from our partners, our community.
