      Hi Subarna,
      Please understand that CFF do not give out any scholarships or funds/grants, instead we act as a platform for scholarships/funds/grants announcements.
      We have a section in our website dedicated entirely to “Training Opportunities” (mostly postgraduate studies):

      The post entitled “International Course “Contemporary Approaches to Genetic Resources Conservation and Use” is still accepting applications as the stated deadline is 01 October 2013.
      We wish you all the best in securing a scholarship and your future endeavours. Cheers!

  3. Thank you for this glorious initiative and opportunity. we hope that through efforts like this we may revamp the green revolution, in order to sustain the world’s population that is seeming to greatly out weigh food supply. In the meantime we need to keep an eye on food waste and food losses. This underlines the importance of postharvest technologies especially for small-scale farmers
