Building science capacity in developing countries has been the objective of the International Foundation for Science (IFS) for more than 20 years. To identify young scientists of merit who have the potential for becoming, the future research leaders in their nations, and to effectively support these in their early careers through small grants and other forms of support has been the strategy of IFS to fulfill its objective. The philosophy of IFS is to focus grants on individuals and then give them supplementary support in order that they can get the most out of the grants. To be eligible for an IFS research grant, the candidate must be a national of a developing country; hold a university degree or the equivalent; have a permanent job in a research institute or university in a developing country; and be launching into a scientific career. The project must be carried out within a developing country; have a clearly defined research component; and relate to one of the IFS research areas (aquatic resources, animal production, crop science, forestry/agroforestry, food science, natural products and environmental sciences). Applications are evaluated by international experts, using the following criteria: relevance of results, not only to development but also in the context of national priorities and scientific knowledge; scientific quality and feasibility.
