PhD Scholarships in Plant Breeding

Monsanto’s Beachel-Borlaug International Scholars Program honors two of the World’s best known plant breeders who are widely credited for bringing the green revolution to rice and wheat production.  The dramatic increase in rice and wheat production per unit area of land prevented starvation for billions of people.  The MBBIS program is funded at $2 million per year for 5 years for a total of $10 million. The program provides complete support for PhD students in rice and wheat breeding.  The MBBIS program was announced on Dr. Norman Borlaug’s 95th birthday on March 25, 2009.  The 1st round of application were evaluated by an internationally acclaimed panel of judges and 12 scholars were selected for support. Second round of funding closed on February 1, 2010.  Applications for years 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds of funding should be submitted between November 1, 2010, 2011 and 2012 and February 1 in 2011, 2012 and 2013.  Funds are encumbered for the duration of the PhD program.  Scholars must complete part of their PhD program in Australia, Canada, Western Europe or the United States and part in another country of the World.  Students work with their advising professor or scientist who then submits the application for the student.
