The Queen Elizabeth Scholars (QES) program has funded LINkIN-Ghana, a McGill University-University of Ghana program to strengthen the capacity of researchers who work with farmers, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and local institutions to develop solutions to agriculture and food and nutrition security. We seek to improve especially the lives of adolescent girls and women farmers in rural Ghana through expanding knowledge and skills, and improving access to services and markets.

LINkIN-Ghana will support a network of exceptional scholars from diverse disciplines who are at the doctoral, post-doctoral, and early career stages.  To more completely understand the complexity of the issues of agriculture and food security and their link to nutrition, and appreciate the contribution that diverse sectors make, the program integrates research and professional training with internships hosted at non-academic institutions working in rural communities.
