Request for Proposals
RREA 2017-2018 Call for Proposals
Submission Deadline: June 29, 2017
The University of California's Renewable Resources Extension Act Program is soliciting:
1. Proposals to develop and/or support new or existing Cooperative Extension projects/activities that are addressing the educational and extension needs in the management of California's valuable renewable resources on forest and rangeland. The primary purpose of this program is to promote the proper management of these resources, especially on private lands, and to provide the information, education, and training needed by Extension personnel, land owners, and land managers and natural resource professionals.
2. Student Intern Proposals that would utilize the services and talents of student interns during the summer. Internships are open to undergraduate or graduate students from any institution of higher education in California, particularly the University of California and the California State Universities. Principal investigators will not be granted additional RREA funds to pay for supplemental costs associated with the project. Student interns are expected to work 40 hours/week on projects or activities that address educational and extension needs in the management of California's renewable resources. Interns will be funded up to $6,000. Intern proposals must demonstrate the connection to Cooperative Extension (county or campus office).
Application Procedure: To create a proposal for an RREA grant, go to your ANR Portal (https://ucanr.edu/portal/). The application for RREA Grants is in the Universal Review System here: 2017-2018 RREA Project and Student Intern Grants.
