Consider Applying for an Issue Area Grant

Dean Durgan recently announced a request for proposals for issue area grants to support our cross-disciplinary efforts in key issue areas. Grant proposals are being for projects that advance Extension's work in the following issue areas: promoting youth educational success and food systems.

Successful proposals will add value/impact and contribute to Extension's cross-center collaboration and external partnerships. They may be carried out by diverse teams from across Extension and include other University and external partners.

This effort is designed to increase external visibility and demonstrate Extension's comparative advantage to address these complex issues. Projects must advance Extension's contribution to research, education and value/impact through applied research-based educational programming.
An Extension educator, specialist or faculty member with an Extension appointment must serve as one of the project leaders. Non-Extension personnel are encouraged to work jointly with Extension staff and may serve as co-project leaders.

Deadline for proposals is August 15 and more information is available on the intranet.
