The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) recognizes the important and largely unfulfilled role that universities can play in contributing to the well-being of small-scale farmers and providing a platform for national development. Since 1992, RUFORUM has trained over 800 post-graduate students with strong empathy for rural communities who are in demand and effectively employed. RUFORUM has also provided training and support to enhancing university staff and operational effectiveness and promoted greater sharing and lesson learning among member universities and with other African and international institutions. It has also facilitated mobilization of high level support for greater investment in agricultural higher education. This manual provides guidelines for the RUFORUM Competitive Grants System.
