Call for proposals for CIAS graduate student summer mini-grant program

The Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (CIAS) invites graduate student applications for our summer mini-grant program, which is made possible through a generous donation from the Single Step Foundation. These awards will provide up to $2,500 for graduate student research aligned with the work of CIAS. This year, we are particularly interested in proposals on: local and regional food systems; continuous living cover; and urban agriculture.

Undergraduate research is not eligible for funding through this program. Grant-funded work must be completed by Aug. 31, 2018. Previous awards are described at https://goo.gl/P4b7B4.

The applicant’s faculty advisor must currently be, or must be willing to become, a faculty associate of CIAS (http://go.wisc.edu/4r0t1f). Contact Mike Bell, CIAS Director, at michaelbell@wisc.edu for information about becoming a CIAS faculty associate.

All applicants who submit materials by March 16, 2018 are assured consideration. Download the call for proposals at https://goo.gl/P4b7B4.
