Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Application Deadline- 1 August

The Southeast Asian (SEA) region has a number of promising researchers and scientists whose desire to contribute to the region’s development through research and knowledge dissemination initiatives is hindered by lack of funds. This situation serves as a barrier to translating promising research and training into scientific outputs that could be applied to promote development.

To address this concern and in line with the Center’s thrust of promoting, undertaking and coordinating research programs relevant to inclusive and sustainable agricultural and rural development of the region, SEARCA will dedicate funds to be known as the SEARCA Seed Fund for Research and Training (SFRT).

Proponent Qualifications

The proponent should be a Southeast Asian national who is a graduate of at least a four-year degree course, with limited research/training start-up funds.

Priority in terms of number of slots will be given to the following:

  • SEARCA Graduate Scholarship Alumni
  • Faculty and Staff of members of the University Consortium
  • Faculty and staff of universities under SEARCA’s Institutional Development Assistance Program

    Southeast Asian nationals outside of the above-mentioned SEARCA network who are regular employees of development organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies of any of the SEA countries may likewise be considered.

Re-Applying Grantees: Previous grantees may re-apply provided that their last SFRT grant has not been within the preceding two years.

How to Apply:

All proposals and related documents should be submitted online (http://sfrt.searca.org). All applicants will fill out the system’s online submission form completely for their application to proceed and be submitted.
