With budgets tight, we’re learning to do more with less. Often that propels us to perform above the rest, knowing that we have to be at the top of our game to succeed. When opportunity strikes, it’s necessary to be prepared to meet it.
Michigan State University’s Project GREEEN (Generating Research and Extension to meet Economic and Environmental Needs) has issued its request for proposals (RFP) for fiscal year 2012-2013. More than $2 million will be available for funding research and Extension projects focusing on plant agriculture in 2012 – about half will be for new projects.
Because funding is limited, competition will be intense. Only the most outstanding projects will be funded.
Proposals will be accepted in four categories: basic research, applied research, Extension/education/demonstration and seed grants.
Submit proposals and letters of support through the Project GREEEN website by Jan. 12, 2012 at 5 p.m.
Project GREEEN is a cooperative effort between plant-based commodities and businesses together with AgBioResearch, MSU Extension and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to advance Michigan’s economy through its plant-based agriculture.
