The Renewable Resources Extension Act (RREA) Statewide Special Program is requesting proposals for projects and student interns.
RREA is requesting proposals to develop and/or support new or existing projects/activities that are addressing the educational and extension needs in the management of California's valuable renewable resources. 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 Cooperative Extension personnel, land owners and land managers.
The program is also requesting 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).
