Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) Grants for Agricultural Research 17/18

August 23, 2017

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) Grants for Agricultural Research 17/18 competition.

Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) funds are available to tenured or tenure- track faculty engaging in agricultural research. Preliminary indications are that approximately $250,000 will be available for allocation in fall 2017; this amount is subject to change depending on the budget. Proposals can request up to $150,000 max.

ARI projects must have a strong link to agriculture, including forestry and fish aquaculture. The match requirement is 100% of the requested amount with at least 25% of this from cash and the remainder in-kind. Note that the cash match simply means that you may leverage an existing grant or contract (excluding grants supported from the CSU general fund) with funds not already committed to match associated with your ARI Proposal. As such, ARI proposals may be used to augment the activities associated with an existing grant (e.g., NSF, USDA, etc).

  • Internal Submission Deadline: Friday, October 27, 2017
  • Award Cycle: Academic Year 17-18
  • Discipline/Subject Area: Faculty in the College of Natural Resources and Sciences

There will also be a "F.A.Q. Session" Hosted by HSU SPF on Monday, September 11th from 11:30am -1:00pm in the EOC (1st floor of the SBS Building). This will be an informative meeting where interested faculty can come and discuss their ARI Proposal ideas.
