UPDATE 8/10/2012:
In addition to the RFP language change noted below, the required budget worksheet has been updated to reflect new fringe benefit rates which became effective July 1, 2012. Download the new worksheet here, or access it from the full call for proposals .

The Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment Station has issued a revised fiscal year 2014 call for proposals. The revision consists of a language change on pg. 3 of the full call for proposals. Added text is highlighted below.

“…each proposal MUST be strongly linked to one or more of the Five National Priorities (see pg. 5 and 6) and MUST be clearly agriculturally-related. (So for example, research on human obesity would not be acceptable, whereas research on adipose deposition in swine would be acceptable.)
