Lee Foundation Funds Breeding of New Rice Scientists
Friday, 2013/07/12 | 08:10:09

The Lee Foundation, a charitable foundation in Singapore, has donated US$3 million to educate and train a new generation of rice scientists. With the Lee Foundation's support, the scholarship will fund 15-18 PhD scholars for three to four years. It will cover all their costs to study at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) headquarters or in regional locations alongside the world's leading rice scientists. The scholars will work on four strategic themes involving rice food security: gene discovery and bioinformatics, modern rice breeding, future rice systems to ensure food security, and economics and policy. They will also participate in the landmark 3-week Rice: Research to Production course known worldwide for its unique ability to build a deep understanding of the challenges related to rice food security.
