Western SARE Professional + Producer Grant

Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education

Opens August 1, 2021

About

This grant program involves agricultural professional (main applicant) and producers implementing projects to address identified needs in sustainable agriculture. With the collaboration of producers, projects must integrate research and education aiming to advance the three components of sustainable agriculture—environmental, economic, and social—and use innovative educational outreach to disseminate new knowledge to producers and other agricultural stakeholders. It is expected that outcomes of funded projects will result in quantifiable benefits for producers, increase the preservation of the natural and social resources upon which agriculture relies, and be shared with other producers.

Eligibility

Eligible Applicants: WSARE requires that agricultural producers be involved from inception to finish in the planning, design, implementation, and educational outreach or any WSARE-funded project. Each of the WSARE-funded grant programs, has slightly different requirements for the composition of the team and eligible applicant. Assemble your project team accordingly, keeping in mind the inherent interdisciplinary nature of sustainable agriculture.

Terms

Projects may be one-to-three years in length. Total funds requested cannot exceed $75,000 over the entire project period. Multiple submissions are accepted. Only one application (from any one individual Principal Investigator, PI) can be awarded funding in any of the Western SARE competitive programs in one grant budget cycle. An exception to this rule, are proposals submitted to the Graduate Students program, where more than one project can be awarded to a Principal Investigator, who acts as main advisor of the Graduate Student. Obtaining Graduate Student awards does not exclude the PI to be awarded an additional WSARE Research and Education or Professional Development award for the same budget cycle.
