Small Farms Resources at NC A&T State University

Grad student sustainable ag research funding opportunity

The Southern Region of USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education
(SARE) program is inviting proposals  for graduate student research projects. Proposals should be built around a topic that will contribute to a better understanding of sustainable agriculture. The ceiling for graduate-student research grants is $11,000, and the time limit for funded projects is three years. The 2015 pre-proposal deadline is midnight on May 4.

Project funds may be applied to equipment that will become university property after project completion. Project funding may not be applied to travel to scholarly meetings, thesis preparation or permanent capital improvements.
