AWARD stands for African Women in Agricultural Research and Development, a career development programme funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) which aims to boost scientific and leadership capacity among African women in agricultural research. AWARD is also supported by Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and Agropolis Fondation.

This call is launched within the framework of the Partnership Agreement between Agropolis Fondation and the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES) signed on 01 July 2010.
29 October 2012, Punta del Este (Uruguay) - The Louis Malassis International Scientific Prize for Agriculture and Food, launched by Agropolis Fondation, has been awarded to Pamela Ronald, from University of California -Davis in the “Distinguished Scientist” Category, and to Matty Demont, from Africa Rice Center, in the “Promising Young Scientist” Category.
Four projects were selected under the 2012 Agropolis Fondation-Fondazione Cariplo Joint Call for Proposals "FIRST (French Italian Rice Science and Technology)." These projects concern excellent and potentially high-impact research on rice.

The Prize aims to recognize individuals, or a group of individuals, for their exemplary and promising contribution in promoting agricultural innovation in order to improve food and agricultural systems sustainability as well as contribute to addressing food security and poverty reduction through research, development and/or capacity building in the North, South or in the Mediterranean.
