IMMANA Fellowships

Innovative Metrics and Methods for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA) is a five-year project (2014-19) funded by the UK Department for International Development (UKAid), through the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene with Tufts University and other partners to improve measurement of agriculture-nutrition linkages in Africa and South Asia, through:

My role is to direct the fellowships program, together with co-director Patrick Webb and coordinator Hallie Perlick. (Our former coordinator is Zachary Gersten).  Fellowships, each with support for two mentors, were offered in four successive annual rounds in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 through a detailed call for applications. Eligibility was open to candidates who had completed a doctoral degree within 3 years of their Fellowship start date, in any field related to agriculture, nutrition or health research and practice. Applicants could be of any nationality and could have earned their doctorate anywhere, but IMMANA strongly encouraged applications from citizens of low- and middle-income countries who had research or faculty appointments in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. At least one of the fellowship project’s two mentors must have been located in Africa or Asia.
