About Leventis Foundation Scholarships
The Leventis Foundation Nigeria was established in 1988 to take over and expand the work the “Nigeria Advisory Panel” of the A. G. Leventis Foundation (www.leventisfoundation.org), which had been active since 1979. In support of the Federal Government’s new Educational Programme with its emphasis on self-sufficiency in food production, the Foundation took a major policy decision in 1986 by choosing as its main goal the training of young farmers in modern agricultural methods.
To date nine schools have been established in Nigeria and Ghana specializing in innovative ways of training small scale farmers to improve productivity, efficiency and environmental sensitivity, taking advantage of the latest research at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture and elsewhere.
The trainees spend a year at the schools and then, returning to their farms and communities, are advised and supported by the schools’ extension programmes.
