NCR-SARE Announces 2013 Call for Professional Development Program Preproposals
NCR-SARE's 2013 Professional Development Call for Preproposals is now available online.
NCR-SARE’s Professional Development Program provides funds for professional development projects that provide sustainable agriculture training to agricultural professionals and educators in the Cooperative Extension Service (CES), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), other governmental agencies, and educators in the profit and non-profit sector serving the food and fiber system.
Projects can be up to three years in duration, and funding level is capped at $75,000 for each project, but projects requesting less than full amount are encouraged. Approximately $400,000 will be available for funding projects.
New this year, NCR-SARE will be accepting online submissions for the Professional Development Grant Program using our online submission system. More information about the online submission system can be found in the call for preproposals.
The deadline for preproposals is 4:00pm CDT on Thursday, May 16, 2013.
Any questions regarding the NCR-SARE Professional Development Grant Program should be addressed to PDP Regional Coordinator, Dr. Rob Myers.
