Request for Proposals in Organic & Sustainability Systems Research, Teaching & Outreach

Proposal Submission Deadline: Dec. 5, 2012

The Department of Horticulture at Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) requests proposals for innovative research, teaching and outreach projects involving organics and sustainability in farm and food systems, and managed landscapes. A gift from the Toward Sustainability Foundation (TSF) will provide support for successful proposals during calendar year 2013.

Short proposals are requested (10-page maximum, single spaced, including an itemized budget) from Cornell staff and students, Cooperative Extension educators, and New York farmers. All funded proposals must include someone on the CALS faculty as a principal investigator or co-PI, in order for us to allocate TSF funds. Graduate student-led proposals are welcome for regional or international research, but a Cornell faculty member must indicate his or her commitment to help guide and support the proposal.
