Scholars

A vital step to achieving IRRI's mission is to ensure the transfer of knowledge and innovations the Insitute develops to where they are needed the most. We have been developing a new generation of rice workers since the 1960s, providing scholarships to young rice scientists from across the globe. We believe that the right experience and exposure to technologies are critical to training future rice experts. These are some of our scholars and their stories.
