CIAS invites graduate student applications for 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 equity and food sovereignty.

Undergraduate research is not eligible for funding through this program. Grant-funded work must be completed by Aug. 31, 2019. Previous awards are described at https://www.cias.wisc.edu/cias-mini-grants-support-graduate-student-research-in-sustainable-agriculture/.

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 Cris Carusi, CIAS Associate Director, at cecarusi@wisc.edu for information about becoming a CIAS faculty associate.

All applicants who submit materials by March 15, 2019 are assured consideration. Download the call for proposals at https://www.cias.wisc.edu/cias-mini-grants-support-graduate-student-research-in-sustainable-agriculture/.

If you have questions about the mini-grant program or the application process, contact Cris Carusi, cecarusi@wisc.edu, 608-262-8018.
