Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) Grants for Agricultural Research 18/19

February 1, 2018

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) Grants for Agricultural Research 18/19 competition.

Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) funds are available to all tenured, tenure-track faculty, or research associates engaging in agricultural research.  Preliminary indications are that approximately $250,000 will be available for allocation in fall 2018; 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: Wednesday, March 28, 2018
  • Award Cycle: Academic Year 18-19
  • Funding Available: $250,000


For assistance with submitting a proposal please contact one of our Pre-Award Specialists: Erika Wright at (707) 826-5166 -or- Pia Gabriel at (707) 826-5203

*Please note – this is a different InfoReady submission portal than was used in prior competitions for HSU. ARI now has a central application system with different requirements from our last competition.
