The GCHERA WORLD AGRICULTURE PRIZE is the international award of the Global Confederation of Higher Education Associations for the Agricultural and Life Sciences (GCHERA). The Prize aims to encourage the development of the mission of higher education institutions in education, research, innovation and outreach in the agricultural and life sciences by recognizing the distinguished contribution of an individual to this mission.
In 2019 there will be two GCHERA World Agriculture Prizes awarded, each of 100,000 USD. At least one prize will be awarded to a person from a country which is NOT listed as a country with a developed economy. See the list of those countries with a developed economy. Deadline for submitting nominations is 17.00 GMT on 30 April 2019.
Nominations are invited for these two prizes by completing the online nomination form at www.gchera-wap.org where you can also download the Terms and Conditions for Submitting a Nomination for the Prize. The nomination form is the same for both prizes. See the distinguished personal statements of the previous Laureates – click on the drop down menu for World Agriculture Prize Tab.
