Trellis Fund projects
Horticulture Innovation Lab has selected nine new Trellis Fund projects led by organizations in Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Cambodia and Nepal. These six-month projects are each funded with a $2,000 grant, with work scheduled to begin in 2017. A US graduate student with related expertise will be matched to each project, to provide agricultural knowledge and support for local goals.
Graduate students at UC Davis, North Carolina State University, the University of Florida and University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa are now invited to apply to participate in these new Trellis Fund projects. The deadline for applications is November 4th.
