Since 1966 and throughout its history, CIMMYT has sought to enhance the human resources available for agricultural research related to its own objectives. In doing so, CIMMYT has helped candidates study for professional qualifications or higher degrees at appropriate universities. The library at CIMMYT headquarters maintains a list of theses in which CIMMYT is named, and its support—either financial or through the use of its research resources—is recognized in the thesis itself or in a journal article based on the thesis. The list has 867 theses presented at 170 academic institutions, located in 44 countries, and represents the work of 795 scientists from 75 countries.
