About IRRI Education

Since 1964, over 15,000 scientists have been trained to conduct rice research. IRRI scholars have become ministers, secretaries, and leaders within the national research and extension systems (NARES). Many have also become leading scientists all over Asia. By helping to build human capacity, IRRI’s training has enhanced national systems and ultimately has improved the quality of life in agricultural nations.
