The Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (CIAS) invites graduate student applications for our 2014 summer mini-grant program, which is made possible through a generous donation from the Single Step Foundation. These awards will provide up to $2,000 for graduate student research. Undergraduate research is not eligible for funding.
While we welcome applications in any area related to CIAS’s work, grants aligned with the mini-grant priority areas will receive higher priority. Our 2014 priority areas are perennialization of the landscape; climate change, agriculture and food systems; and labor and fair trade in local and regional food systems. The program announcement, linked below, provides detailed descriptions of these priority areas.
All applicants who submit materials by April 28, 2014 are assured consideration.
For more details, including application instructions, see the mini-grant program announcement.
