MDP Students Application Process

The application process is designed to be self-directed. You (the MDP student) should first determine your funding eligibility. Once this is clear you should go through the list of research projects and review those that interest you.  Please do consult with your designated MDP faculty advisor.  Apply as soon as possible.  Your proposal will first be reviewed by the MDP Secretariat to ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria.  The MDP Secretariat will forward your application to the IFAD partners or projects.   Please know that you can complete your application in the  language requested in the research proposal.  Thus if they would like a French speaker, for example,  you can write your application in French.  Please see the side bar for all of the application steps that  you should follow.
