LOIs invited for full proposals now posted
The five strategic initiative panels have reviewed the 168 letters of intent submitted for ANR’s 2012 competitive grants program to identify strong substantive connections to the initiative priorities. Last year 109 LOIs were submitted. The strategic initiative panels have invited authors of 79 LOIs to submit full proposals. Applicants selected to submit a full proposal have been notified and their full proposals will be due Friday, April 13.
The LOIs invited to submit full proposals are posted for viewing at http://ucanr.edu/files/138588.pdf.
"There were many excellent proposals put forward and it's exciting to see the level of participation and interest," said Bill Frost, associate director of Cooperative Extension and the Agricultural Experiment Station.
The Strategic Initiative leaders will forward the proposals for technical review, then will meet on June 25 to determine a list of proposals to recommend for Program Council to review and consider.
Program Council will evaluate and discuss the proposals and make funding recommendations to the Executive Working Group, which will discuss and forward recommendations to VP Allen-Diaz.
ANR’s 2012 competitive grants awards are expected to be announced by VP Allen-Diaz in August-September.
The full call for proposals for the 2012 ANR competitive grants is at http://ucanr.edu/files/134928.pdf.
