The Initiative for Food and AgriCultural Transformation (InFACT) invites you to submit proposals for our Linkage and Leverage seed grant program.
Grant Cycles, Application Deadlines, and Funding Available
Three grant cycles will be offered during the 2017-2018 academic year with multiple awards funded each cycle. Grant proposals received by the following deadlines will be considered for funding, subject to the availability of remaining uncommitted funds:
- October 31, 2017
- January 31, 2018
- April 30, 2018
The amount of funding for a single award may vary from a minimum of $1,500 to a maximum of $35,000. We expect a total of $250,000 to be available for all awards over the three cycles.
Teams of faculty, staff, students, and external partners may apply, with one member of the team identified as the project director. If a project director does not hold an OSU appointment (faculty or staff), they must have an OSU faculty or staff member as a co-director, and that person will be responsible for fiscal management of the grant.
