Request for Proposals
Request for Proposals is typically issued in early Summer and due by the end of August of each year.
RREA 2016-2017 Call for Proposals: Due August 18, 2016
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/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’ 2016-2017 RREA Project and Student Intern Grants.
