Launched in 2011, the Centre’s PhD Thesis Support Grants Program aims to increase the number of qualified human resources in higher learning institutions and government agencies where the grantees are affiliated with the expectation that they would contribute to the development of Indonesia in the area of tropical biology and natural resources management. Since then, a total of 36 PhD students from 12 universities and research institutions in Indonesia have benefitted from the Program.
This year’s grantees are all taking their PhD study program at the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB).
