The Southern region of the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program is accepting pre-proposals for its 2021 Research & Education Grants program. Applicants have a choice of whether they want to submit a systems research-based pre-proposal, or an education-based pre-proposal. Southern SARE’s Education Grant is open to anyone in agriculture interested in conducting education and outreach activities for the benefit of the greater sustainable ag community. SSARE is looking for Education pre-proposals of around $50,000. By contrast, research pre-proposals focus on sustainable agriculture based on a systems approach to research, which aims to understand how the components of a system interact with each other and function as a whole. The central purpose of research proposals is research-based projects with an educational/outreach component involved. SSARE is looking for systems research pre-proposals of around $400,000, though smaller proposals are also welcomed.
Pre-proposals are due by June 5, 2020.
