To whom it may concern,
New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries funds scholarship programmes to build global science capability to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, as part of New Zealand’s contribution to the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA).
- The New Zealand – Global Research Alliance Doctoral Scholarship (NZ-GRADS) offers developing country applicants four fully funded PhDs to be completed at a New Zealand university. Applications close on 30 September 2022; successful awardees will begin their studies in New Zealand at the start of 2024.
- The Climate, Food and Farming, Global Research Alliance Development Scholarships (CLIFF-GRADS) programme enables early-career scientists from developing countries to conduct applied research in agriculture greenhouse gas emission quantification and mitigation. Applications for this round are now open and close September 1, 2022. Successful applicants will be announced in November 2022 alongside COP 27.
The NZ-GRADS is a programme financed by New Zealand (MPI’s GRA fund, via Vote Agriculture) in support of the GRA. The scholarship is administered by Education New Zealand and is open to students from developing countries wishing to complete a PhD in agricultural science. The programme aims at building capability in developing countries, to support the global reduction of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and enhance food security.
The 2022 call for applications is offered for fully funded PhD scholarships associated with a specific research topic and host university in New Zealand. For this round, four PhD projects aligned with existing New Zealand programme have been selected:
- Assessing soil carbon changes associated with land management and land use change, Waikato University.
- Long-term soil phosphorus fertiliser implications for soil nitrogen cycling and greenhouse gas emission, Lincoln University.
- Plant and plant/microbiome traits impacting N2O emissions from soil, Massey University.
- Climate Neutral Farms (ClieNFarms), Massey University.
This Special Round of the NZ-GRADS was launched on 8 July 2022, and applications are open until 30 September. Applicants can apply through the Education New Zealand website: https://www.enz.govt.nz/
CLIFF-GRADS is a joint initiative of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Research Program on Climate Change and the GRA. New Zealand (MPI’s GRA fund) is the main funder of this programme.
The CLIFF-GRADS Programme provides short-term research stays at a host institution in another country for up to 6 months. PhD students from developing countries undertake scientific training and research on topics related to measurement, modelling and mitigation of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions.
The main objective of CLIFF-GRADS is to develop scientific capability of early career scientists by exposure to technical equipment, software and expertise that they would not otherwise have in their home countries or institutes.
Round 5 of the CLIFF-GRADS programme is now open, in total 61 research opportunities are available across GRA member countries and partner organisations, including one opportunity to be hosted in New Zealand. Applications close 1 September 2022. Research stays will begin in early 2023 and be completed before the end of 2024.

The capability programmes are a key part of New Zealand’s contribution to reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing food security globally. The programmes are rapidly gaining traction as alumni start to contribute to developing locally appropriate solutions, and more institutions from developing countries are applying to host students (with one third of applications to host a CLIFF-GRADS student this round being from institutions in developing countries).
The GRA capability programmes, in addition to benefits to science, also deliver benefits similar to the ‘Colombo Plan’ developed by Commonwealth members in 1951 – with alumni going on to leadership roles in academia, business, and policy; and providing key contacts for New Zealand in advancing multilateral discussions.
